Police in Ceres, California, have identified a man they say donned a black mini skirt and tights to rob a bank. An officer recognized the cross-dressing criminal, and say Leonard Brown Jr. is on the run.
He went to great lengths, officers say, dressing in drag from head to toe. He donned a black wig and carried a purple purse.
Just a block from the bank, the SWAT team searched an apartment complex. Neighbours say they concentrated on one apartment in particular. They didn't find the suspect, but they did find his disguise stuffed in a dumpster. He reportedly wore flats, not heels.
The drag had some completely fooled, but not to the police, who say one officer, familiar with Brown sans wig, took one look at the surveillance and knew it was him. Police believe Brown may be hiding out in the Merced area.
