ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) - A man accused of being the "Duct Tape Bandit" has gotten into a sticky situation. The man, who had his head wrapped in duct tape to conceal his identity, walked into a liquor store on Friday, Ashland police said.
Shamrock Liquors store manager Bill Steele had some duct tape of his own, but his was wrapped around a wooden club that sent the robber fleeing, according to a report by WSAZ-TV in Huntington, W.Va.
Store employee Craig Miller said he chased the man to the parking lot, tackled him and held him in a choke hold until police arrived. A customer also helped, police said.
Kasey G. Kazee, 24, of Ashland, was charged with first-degree robbery, according to Ashland Police Sgt. Mark McDowell.
Kazee, in an interview with the TV station, denied he was the bandit who robbed the store of two rolls of change. He pleaded not guilty Monday and bond was set at $250,000.
how do you add to this story? this is the kind of funny that just seems to write itself. oh how i wish it was i who was wacking this big taped head. i just figure hes a pinata and there must be goodies in there. how much fun would it have been to rip the tape off of his head? is this the kind of story that you just dont tell the other convicts. i think i'd rather tell them i'm a molester than own up to this ridiculous story.
anyway, good for the owner and the store employee who beat him and then held him for the cops. frankly it would have been better if the owner just yanked out a gun and blew him away. this is a guy we dont need polluting the gene pool anyway.
