Top Ten Strangest Missouri Bandits: Mr. Polite, Spider-Man, Granddad and More! (PHOTOS)
2. The Gray Wig Bandit
A confusing costume is the key to a confused police department. Such was the case with a bank robbery executed quickly and quietly by an individual with red lipstick and a grey wig.
Columbia officials originally identified this person as "believed to be female," then as a grammatically incorrect "they" -- and in a subsequent press release, gave up altogether and said the gender of the suspect was "unknown." But police would still like tips if you have any leads!
1. The Granddad Bandit
This guy really is like the grandfather of all crazy Missouri bandits. In 2010, after he was suspected of robbing literally dozens of banks, St. Louis FBI held a press conference and officially gave him the granddad nickname.
Why? He's nice, polite -- and really good at stealing money.
