The man was described as "white, 30 to 35 years old, 6 feet 1 inches tall and 180 pounds. He had a scraggly beard, wore a light-colored beanie with a small bill, a long-sleeve black shirt and blue jeans." He wore black sunglasses and had a Band-Aid on his nose and right cheek.

And he got away with tons of money?

But the resemblance is striking. Good eye and laugh.

Where is "wow" and "keep em east of western"? They love to keep count and attribute ever act of crime purely to race, so they should be here very soon to bombard this forum with racial slurs and insults toward the suspect in this article....

LOL, yeah. No way that was the Dogg. However, I do like his foul mouthed rants - he's actually quite a very intelligent and well-read guy in real life.

Yes, the statistics have played out and finally, after a long wait, there is a white suspect to show a photograph of. Still, the statistics remain the same, most violent, felonious crimes are committed by black or hispanic suspects.
Contiue to be politically correct, continue to make anti type comments about guys like Wow who state it like it is, but it doesn't change the FACTS!
Congrats, you got a white guy to complain about. Meanwhile, blacks and hispanics have just raped, robbed and murdered more people than whites will all day long!

Yes, you would have. But you weren't there.

Even Bogert knows about the dangers,
here in our South Bay,
and so he lives in distant Pasadena.

He didn't see what's going on,
on Torrance Boulevard, after hours,
thirty years ago.
He only came for breakfast the next day.

The "Breeze" was silent,
the criminals had the green light!
Orders from higher up,
said TPD Capt. James Popp.

Mayor Geissert said their "hands were tied."

this is pretty bad, with all the money banks make this is the best they can still come up for footage/still image of a suspect. looks almost as bad as grainy black and white images we used to see...

guys your in the digital age, move on get a better imaging system they aren't expensive. how much did you lose in the hold up?

Duh.
