    First time I've ever heard a report like this.

    This case probably bears watching to make sure it doesn't spill over into the realm of OC providing RAS for a stop and ID demand.

    And wearing a VT hat! I'm glad that I live nowhere near there, because I could fit that profile pretty well. White male, VT hat, and OCing. Yikes!

    Seriously though, what the heck happened here? Is this guy really just the world's dumbest bank robber? If he was indeed OCing (which I would like to see a picture of), he must have known that that would probably attract some attention. He also did practically nothing to hide his identity, and, consequently, they have what has to be the world's clearest security camera picture of this guy. It will probably take all of two minutes before this guy is arrested.

    Maybe he had a large cell phone on his hip - one can hope.

    Let's see. Just last week I did what I usually do every two weeks. Went in to my local Wells Fargo branch, sidearm in view, and handed a teller a note detailing the amount of cash I wanted and in what denominations. WoW! I'm a robber.

    Seriously, that is one heck of a good shot of this guy. Like VApatriot wrote... it shouldn't take long to turn up this one with the picture and description. Yep, not a smart thing to do for your future business plans.
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    I wonder why they didn't show a full picture of him WITH the gun on his side. Perhaps it really was concealed or not even there.

    ...and here we go. The anti's are going to run with this like you wouldn't believe. I sure do hope a photo of this man entering the bank turns up and it was only a large cell phone like someone posted earlier. I have a couple of words to describe this person but the rules of the forum don't allow profanity...at least the kind of words I was going to use.

    I dunno... the report says "handgun in a holster on his side" which does not necessarily mean "openly carried". For all we know the note said he had a gun and the teller inferred that since it was not in his hands it must be on his side. "On his side" could mean in a shoulder holster as those are also worn on the side, although under the arm.

    How many jackets have you seen lately that don't look all mucked up when tucked behind a holster on a belt?

    I agree!
    I think the chances of it being openly carried are pretty slim. He has a jacket on and would want to be unnoticed until he got to the teller.

    Not a chance it's OC.
    You can see the gun bulge under his jacket.

    I was thinking it was probably concealed as well, and he simply may have flashed it to the teller when he handed her the note. Might not even be a real gun.

    Maybe not so much revenue enhancement as to become an undocumented account-holder, seeking an expedited undocumented withdrawal.

    He's been caught

    Army Staff Sergeant said he robbed credit union because of money trouble
    http://wtkr.com/2013/04/11/army-staf...union-robbery/
    According to the arrest affidavit, Shaw handed the teller an LFCU deposit envelope labeled, “don’t pull out note.”
    In the note, Shaw told the teller not to panic and demanded $4,000 in cash. He also told to teller he worked at a financial institution so he knows how things work at a bank.
    The teller complied and Shaw revealed a holstered firearm. Later, Shaw confessed to carrying a replica .45 Smith and Wesson pellet gun


    So again the lame stream media gets original reports wrong. No OC.
