Police search for cross-dressing bank robber

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) – Police release surveillance video from a Jackson bank robbery in hopes the public can help identify the suspect. 

The images are from the Omni Bank on County Line Road. It was robbed Friday night just before six o'clock. 

The robber looks like a woman -- but police say it's actually a man dressed in a ladies' business suit. He duct-taped four employees and forced them into the vault. 

That same branch was hit by the so-called "duct-tape bandits" earlier this month.  But investigators say this robber does not fit their profile. 

If you can identify him, call Jackson police at 601-960-1234.
