Wait a minute. Who is that in the second photo? That's not the description and looks different than other photo. OK, did he have a partner or did he change clothes? Will the Napa Police please tell us who is the real bank robber? Maybe the FBI can sort this out.

One of the photos is from the earlier robbery in October. He has a lighter beanie on in that one....

They should put a camera in the creek.

Trail camera in the creek is not a bad idea. Also good parking lot camera coverage (front and back) would be helpful.
