Police say alleged ’tissue bandit’ tied to more robberies


HENRY COUNTY, Ga. – We’re learning new information about a serial robber police say is using flu season as a way to throw off his victims. Channel 2 Action News first told you about this story last month. Surveillance video shows the robber holding a napkin or something like it over his face to carry out his crimes. Police say the man has robbed four Henry County businesses since October using this method. In a surveillance video taken from a Metro PCS store in Ellenwood, you can see the suspect cover his face, with what looks like a napkin as if he has a cold. Capt. Joey Smith with the Henry County Police Department said the robber also sometimes wears medical scrubs.
