Brilliant: Man Wearing Albert Einstein Mask Robs Florida Bank

A man wearing an Albert Einstein mask robbed a Florida bank Saturday afternoon, according to police.

The suspect left a Wells Fargo branch in Venice with an “undisclosed amount of money” and maced a customer who sought to follow him from the bank. He did not show a weapon to bank personnel (or claim to be carrying). 

The robber, seen in the above surveillance photo, fled in a red sedan being driven by an accomplice.

Sarasota County Sheriff's Office deputies are seeking the public’s help in identifying the man who posed as the German physicist during the post-Halloween heist.
