Bank robber looks like me | Federal Way letters

I oppose the proliferation of photocop cameras.

Specifically, I have complained that the tellers at my bank ask me to remove my cap and glasses when I enter the bank. They say I fit the profile of bank robbers. I say, “Why me? Do I look like a bank robber?”

On March 31, The Mirror published a story of the robbery of a Bank of America branch in Federal Way on March 25. There was a good description and an amazingly good photo of the alleged robber. Guess what? He looks just like me.

I want to apologize to the tellers of my bank, the Woodstone Credit Union. I guess I do look like a bank robber. From now on, I will gladly remove my dark glasses and my baseball cap when I enter the bank.

Leo J. Thoennes, Federal Way
