    Police say man in wheelchair robbed bank
    Fri Apr 4, 7:15 PM ET

    PALO ALTO, Calif. - Palo Alto police are looking for a bank robber who favors a decidedly slow-speed getaway vehicle — an electric wheelchair. Police said a man in his 60s with gray hair and a beard held up the Wachovia Bank branch at the Stanford Shopping Center late this afternoon with a black handgun.

    After the stickup, he left in his wheelchair and was last seen motoring down a nearby street toward El Camino Real, a major thoroughfare.

    Witnesses say the man's legs were wrapped in bandages and his right leg was sticking straight out while he zoomed away.

    Police are looking for a white Ford van that the suspect may have been hoisted into after the robbery.

    Investigators don't know whether the wheelchair was just a prop or whether the suspect was truly disabled.


    Information from: San Jose Mercury News,
    4/6/97, car accident, C5.

    That reminds me of Callahan's autobiography "Don't worry, he won't get far on foot."
