A New Hempshire man has been arrested after robbing a bank while wearing a President Obama mask.
John Griffin Jr, 52, of Newport, is accused of robbing a Bank of America branch in the town of Merrimack at around 10.30am Wednesday.
Police say a man wearing a ‘full-face’ Obama mask, suit coat and tie demanded money from a teller and then took off on foot with an undetermined amount of cash.
Investigators were able to track down Griffin matching the robber’s description coming from behind a business in the area of Columbia circle.
Authorities say it was determined that the man had robbed the bank and was carrying a loaded semi-automatic pistol, even though he did not display the weapon during the heist, Merrimack Patch reported. Griffin was arrested without incident.
