Deploying what appears to be a remarkable and perhaps even inspired evolution of bandit disguises, Montgomery County police say a man robbed a CVS on Christmas Eve with his face heavily bandaged and his arm dangling in a sling.
I’m calling him the Mummy Robber with a Bum Arm.
The Mummy Robber with a Bum Arm strolled into a Montgomery Village CVS around 8:45 p.m., according to police. I have seen some injured people wandering around CVS before, but never with head injuries so severe that I could barely see their eyes.
To me, it looks like the Mummy Robber with a Bum Arm required more specialized care than what CVS typically offers, but I am not a doctor.
Anyway, with his healthy arm, the Mummy Robber with a Bum Arm slipped a note to the pharmacy staff informing them that he had a gun, according to police. He demanded drugs. The pharmacy staff did not put up a fight, despite the robber’s wounds. (Never tussle with a robber, no matter how silly their disguise.)
Thankfully, none of victims in the transaction suffered any injuries — real or fake -- other than being rightfully scared and perhaps miffed.
After procuring his Christmas Eve loot, the Mummy Robber with a Bum Arm bolted out the front door in an unknown direction, and now Montgomery County police have released a surveillance photo of him hoping that someone will recognize him behind the gauze.
Police say he is between 6 feet and 6 feet 3 inches in height. He weighs between 200 and 230 pounds.
I suspect the Mummy Robber with a Bum Arm’s disguise will make him difficult to catch, even if this picture goes viral, and I assume it will. You just don’t see bandaged robbers every day.
