Apparently it’s not a good idea to walk into a bank dressed head to toe in tactical gear… go figure! Jonathan Menough was attending Anime NebrasKon 2012 when he decided to make a quick run from the convention to a nearby bank. Unfortunately his Resident Evil costume included a number of guns, knives and weapons that scared local residents. And by “local residents” i mean little old ladies peeking out from behind their window curtains.
Imagine seeing guns strapped to a person’s side and that street walker strolling into a bank. Police said a suspect was dressed like a mass shooter, so they had to take it seriously when someone reported the man entering a bank.
But what started as a serious emergency call had officers laughing by the end. Jonathan Menough said he had a 9mm pistol on his hip when he made a run from the convention to a nearby bank.
I think the most surprising news from this report is that there’s an anime convention in Nebraska! I never would have figured those guys for Pokemon fans. (That’s anime, right?)
Anyway… even though police employed “high-risk tactics” and went in with guns drawn, thankfully no one was hurt. You can check out the full story online at KETV.com which is, apparently, Omaha’s Favorite News Source!
