HIDDENITE, N.C. -- Police are investigating an unusual robbery in Hiddenite.
Someone dressed in a burgundy burka walked into the People’s Bank at 3:45 p.m. Tuesday (October 16, 2007), showed the teller a handgun and demanded money.
The robber then took off down N.C. 90 in a burgundy sport utility vehicle.
Authorities are looking into whether this bank robbery can be connected to one in Morganton.
An androgynously dressed person held up a bank there last week.
Officers aren’t sure whether they’re looking for a man or a woman in either case.
Police also think there is a good chance the burka burglar is working with at least one other person, a getaway driver.
