Police Search for Cross-Dressing Robber

The robber in the green sun dress could have used a little fashion help, witnesses agreed. Police were searching Tuesday for a the man who robbed a bank while wearing a woman's wig and dress.

"It was a leaf design, but muted," a woman who witnessed the holdup said of the robber's frock. "He looked a mess," said another witness.

The witnesses, whose full names weren't released by police, said the robber was obviously male, given away by his muscular leg - and the mustache.

Police Capt. Tommy McCaskill said the robber threatened a teller at a branch bank in a Kroger store in this Memphis suburb but did not show a weapon. No one was hurt.

As the robber fled, he tried to cover the mustache with one hand while grasping what police said was $4,000 in the other.
