As far as tactics to cover your tracks when involved with a robbery go, this might just take the cake. A pair of armed men in Indiana robbed a bank last weekend dressed as the legendary R&B/funk singer Rick James, and Youngblood Priest from the 1972 blaxploitation film Super Fly. The two men are suspected to be involved with the robbing of an Advance America bank on September 19. New York Daily News reports that the two men entered the bank with handguns, demanding money from behind the counter.
The two men stole an undisclosed amount of money from the bank. The man dressed as Rick James is suspected to have robbed the Indiana Members Credit Union the day after on September 20. There’s no other information regarding the robbery besides the fact it has been confirmed the two men were wearing wigs, meaning that glorious hair isn’t legit, which is just a little bit disappointing. From the sounds of things, this is just a little bit of a scarier interpretation of Rick James than Dave Chappelle’s famous impersonation.
