Wait your turn

Way to not draw attention to your self.


Robber wore ski mask in queue

A US bank robber gave the game away when he queued up to be served while wearing a ski mask.

Police say Feliks Goldshtein, 24, stood in line behind other customers while wearing the black mask.

A cashier told him to remove the mask while in the bank in Stow, Ohio. Police say he didn't reply but continued to wait.

When he got to the front of the queue, the man displayed what turned out to be a toy gun and demanded money. He made off with an undisclosed amount.
Stow Police later arrested Goldshtein and charged him with aggravated robbery, reports the Stow Sentry.

Police say the suspect was caught after a car chase. Money and a black ski mask were found inside the car and a toy handgun was later found in the snow where police suspect it had been thrown during the chase.
