Man charged with robbing bank in Obama mask
MERRIMACK, New Hampshire — A bank robber in an Obama mask didn’t hold onto his ill-gotten gains for long.
Police say a man wearing a full-face Obama mask, suit coat, tie and jeans walked into a bank in Merrimack, New Hampshire, on Wednesday, and demanded money from a teller.
The teller handed over “an undetermined amount” of money and the man fled on foot.
It took all of 12 minutes for Merrimack Police to find and arrest a suspect.
John Griffin Jr., 52, is charged with robbery and is being held on $75,000 bail.
Earlier this month, an Obama impersonator was behind an ill-conceived performance as a rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair.
