Tacoma bank robber: man of many disguises?

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Police in Tacoma, Wash, say a man who donned a wig and a flowered blue dress to rob a KeyBank branch last week may have used a different look while robbing another branch of the bank two days later.

The News Tribune reports ( http://is.gd/qLlsOW) that the man who hit a KeyBank last Friday afternoon wore a black shirt and pants, a bike helmet and sunglasses and had long blond hair. Police said Tuesday the flowing hair may have been another wig.

The robber is described as in his late 40s.

Police say the man can't disguise his bad teeth and wrinkled complexion.
