Ironic mustache. Thick (and probably fake) black-rimmed glasses. Knit hat.

The guy disguised as a hipster stereotype just robbed a Huntington Bank in Concord Twp., per the pictures and descriptions of the suspect via the Lake County Sheriff's Office Facebook page. He walked into the bank around 2:15 this afternoon, handed a teller a note and made out with some money: "The suspect is described as a white male, around 30 years of age, approximately 5'6" tall, thin build, wearing a brown sweater, with dark brown hair under a striped stocking hat. Appears to have fake mustache and glasses."

Call 9-1-1 if you have any information. Authorities don't believe he had any weapons, presumably because guns are too mainstream.
