Man robs shop while wearing a plastic bag on his head

Rubberbandits tribute act?

AS THE WISE philosopher Katy Perry once said: “Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?”

This man must have taken these words a little too much to heart.

Police in the UK are trying to find a man who robbed a shop in Hertfordshire last week – all while wearing a plastic bag on his head.

The man entered the store at around 8.40am with a white Londis bag over his head, before threatening a member of staff with a knife and leaving with money from the till.

No one was injured during the incident.

Hertfordshire police have released a CCTV image of the man, with a police spokesperson saying:

It is quite unusual for a robbery to be committed where the suspect uses a carrier bag as a means to attempt to conceal their identity.
We would like to speak with the man pictured as he may be able to assist our enquiries.

Hey Rubberbandits, if we were you we’d keep an eye out – someone is trying to steal your style.
