It isn't uncommon for police to release details about certain physical characteristics of a suspect involved in a crime. A tattoo, a scar -- things along those lines.
According to the Phoenix Police Department, one of the characteristics that might help track down the guy who robbed a bank in Phoenix yesterday are his "messed up" teeth.
The suspect, described as a white male, about 35 years old, 5-foot-8, a thin build, and "messed-up" teeth, walked into the Wells Fargo at 12641 North Tatum Boulevard in Phoenix at about 10:45 a.m. yesterday.
The suspect approached a teller, said he wanted all of his money, and the teller just handed it over.
The suspect took the cash and was on his way -- in a fairly recognizable car that witnesses were able to identify.
The suspect's getaway car is described as a mid-'90s, white Ford Mustang with a beige, convertible top. There may be a for-sale sign in one of its windows.
At the time of the robbery, the suspect was wearing a long black wig with a white hair clip, sunglasses, a dark-blue baseball cap with an unknown white logo, a light-blue long sleeve button-down shirt, and grey or blue pants.
Silent Witness is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to this guy's capture, so if you have any information about the robbery, or the suspect, call the Phoenix Police Department.
