Bearded bandit robs Center City bank

No, Jayson, say it ain't so ...

Whoops! At first glance, the bearded, shaggy-haired thief who robbed a Center City Citizens Bank earlier today seemed to have a healthy resemblance to the Phillies shaggy-haired rightfielder, Jayson Werth. (Werth was in Washington, for the record.)

The FBI said the robber, a 30-something white guy who wore a brown hooded sweatshirt, entered the Citizens Bank on Walnut Street near 8th at 3:42 p.m. and handed a threatening note to a teller. He fled the area on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. 

The crook is about 5-feet-7 and has a medium build, the FBI said. Tipsters can call 215-418-4000.
