What’s up with bank robbers wearing Dale Earnhardt Jr. merchandise? The No. 88 of NASCAR’s most popular driver appears to be the "it" fashion choice for today’s criminal. In June I wrote about the man in the Dale Earnhardt Jr. shirt (pictured above) who robbed a credit union in Salt Lake City. The man handed the teller a note, took the money and fled. In late July another man (pictured below) robbed a Memphis credit union while wearing a No. 88 hat. The unidentified man waited behind a customer, got to the front of the line, pulled out a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded cash from two tellers. He also got away.
You never hear about anyone robbing a bank in a Mark Martin hat.
