Police: Masked man waited to rob bank

January 10, 2009


— An Ohio man may have tipped off his intentions when he stood in line at a bank wearing a ski mask before staging a holdup.

Police in Stow say Feliks Goldshtein of Highland Heights was arrested Thursday following a brief car chase.

Police say the teller asked the man to take off the mask. The man displayed what turned out to be a toy gun and demanded money from the teller. He made off with an undisclosed amount.

Police Captain Rick Myers says it’s unusual for a masked robber to wait in line at a bank.

The 24-year-old man remained jailed Friday on charges of aggravated robbery and failure to comply with a police order. Court records didn’t identify an attorney for him.
