ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI) -There’s an update in the story of the bank robber who forgot the value of hiding his face. Remember this guy? We showed him to you a couple of weeks ago, betting, at the time, that it wouldn’t take long for someone to identify him. And we weren’t disappointed.
St. Louis county police tell us our friend here is 55 year old Ricky Martin Sentior. These photos were taken when police say Martin robbed the US Bank at 2041 Union back on June 28th.
Tracking down Martin is proving to be a bit of a chore because police say he’s homeless. They say he spends most of his time in south city and south county. If you know where he is, give cops a call. They say a move up to Clayton, and the county jail, would be appropriate.
Below is the original story:
ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – In St. Louis County, police are looking for a bank robber with no flair for disguise. From looking at the pictures, it appears the man wasn’t the least bit shy about his bank robbery Friday at the U.S. Bank on Union, near Reavis Barracks in south St. Louis County.
Most of our bank robbers of late have at least put forth some effort to hide their face. Not this guy. Take a good look at him. It’s like he went to a portrait studio.
The man, believed to be in his 50s, walked in, handed over a note and took off with the money. He’s driving an older model, grey GMC pickup with no plates.
If you recognize him, call Crimestoppers at 866-371-TIPS (8477.) You can remain anonymous and there is a reward.
