Don't Kill Me! Don't I Know You?

Jerry Tudehope tried really, really hard to be the best robber he could be. According to Boise Police, the 58-year-old Boisean prepped for plundering the Cash Store on Overland at knifepoint by putting on a brown wool cap, a hooded sweatshirt, sunglasses and a Halloween mask with buckteeth and a large fake tongue. Quite the dapper bandit, the suspect even wore wool gloves to ensure that he left no trace of being there. The only problem: He had been there, as a customer. Despite the disguises, a clerk was able to give a hot lead to police, and officers arrested Tudehope at his West Boise home on charges of armed robbery.
