      …. Or at LEAST be smart enough to leave the Mission District for a bit after robbing a bank In the area. He continued to hang out in broad daylight In the same area that he took out a bank? You’d think he’d go on a vacation. What a Yutz.

    not so….he managed to fool the authorities into thinking he was “between 45 -50 years old” (see previous reports)
