The FBI is asking the public's help in catching a so-called “bad wig bandit” who's been robbing banks in North Carolina, per the AP. The FBI says the suspect wore a different wig during each heist in the Charlotte area. One wig was blonde. Another was black. The third was red. The FBI says he robbed a BB&T in Huntersville on Dec. 13. He then robbed two banks on Jan. 7, a New Horizon Bank in Belmont and a Wells Fargo in Gastonia. (More bank robber stories.)
