Local officials haven't said how much money the fake Romney had stolen.
Investigators called the robbery unusual because the suspect, dressed in a Florida State sweatshirt and wielding a gun, spent more time than normal inside the bank. The robber held up all five tellers—leaving only the cash at the drive-through window untouched, according to NBC-4 TV in Washington, D.C.
Strangely, it's not the first time this bank branch has been held up by a famous face. As the local NBC affiliate notes, a robber wearing a Hillary Clinton mask held up the same bank two years ago.
As of now, there are no suspects in the robbery. Local police were questioning store clerks at a nearby Party City, where Romney masks happened to be on sale.
