Never fails this time of year. Always seem to get someone with a team in the Super Bowl robbing a bank, so I wasn’t super shocked to see this one sent in from our content spotter guru @WynHere. Patriots Guy probably has an urge to throw some decent money on the line that keeps tanking & is at 4.5 at some books.
Maybe this Patriots fan in Mebane, NC knows something we don’t.
Mebane Police responded to the robbery call just before 12:30 p.m. at the State Employees Credit Union at 1900 S NC Highway 119.
Witnesses told police a man wearing a New England Patriots toboggan hat approached a teller with the scissors and demanded money.
The teller complied and the suspect left with an undisclosed amount of cash and ran through the parking lot toward the La Cocina Mexican Restaurant.
The suspect was described as a mid- to late-40s, approximately 6 feet tall and weighing between 230 and 240 pounds. Besides the Patriots winter hat, he wore a black hooded sweatshirt.
BTW, this is a super rare robbery method using scissors. Can’t say I’ve heard of that one in all the years that I’ve done this.
