Oct. 28, 2014
ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A man accused of wearing a zebra print dress while robbing a New Hampshire bank has been arrested.
Foster's Daily Democrat (http://bit.ly/1DrBqch ) reports Bart Augustus was charged Tuesday with a felony count of robbery. He already was being held in jail on a probation violation charge.
Police say Augustus robbed the Bank of New Hampshire's Rochester branch last Thursday. They say he didn't display a weapon as he handed the teller a note demanding money. They say nobody was injured and he walked out with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Besides the dress, the robber was wearing a black-and-white checkered bandanna on his head, black-rimmed glasses, a white shirt and a black overcoat. He also was wearing tan nylons over his head.
Augustus can't be reached for comment in jail. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.
