    Police say masked man waited in line to rob bank
    A man may have tipped his intentions when he stood in line at an Ohio bank wearing a ski mask before staging a holdup. Police in Stow near Akron said 24-year-old Feliks Goldshtein of Highland Heights was arrested minutes later on Thursday following a brief car chase.

    Police said the teller asked the man to take off the mask before being served. At that point the man displayed what turned out to be a toy gun and told the teller to give him all the money.

    Police Captain Rick Myers said it's unusual for a masked robber to wait in line at a bank.

    Goldshtein was being held at the Summit County Jail Friday on charges of aggravated robbery and failure to comply with a police order. He had an afternoon court appearance scheduled.

    About ten years ago there was a local liquor store robbery. The thief apparently couldn't read (push or pull) and when he tried to run from the scene, he went through the glass door that said 'pull' since it wouldn't open for him when he pushed. He required medical attention, and got all the attention he needed. Stupid BG's.

    I think it is polite to wait your turn.

    Good to see a different ethnic name represented in the bad guy stories for a change. Too dumb to work, too polite to steal?
    But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself...

    He might have known he was in trouble if he became a line-breaker. Good skills to follow when in prison too. Those guys in there want you to wait your turn also.

    I once read that the average time between deciding to rob a bank and actually doing it is 15 minutes. The trigger is usually a very pressing money emergency (cable gets disconnected or such). Most bank robberies are not planned like the "Italian Job".

    I would have politely asked him to "pretty please" close his eyes before I shot him.

    They didn't explain to him that he needed to take off his mask for the "Favorite Robber" picture board. I'm sure he would have complied then.
