Man in Obama Mask Robs Convenience Store, US Treasury

Was the president anywhere near North Carolina this week? If the items stolen include ice cream, arugula and Nicorette I’ll become a little more suspicious:

A quick glance at surveillance video taken inside a local convenience store might lead someone to believe the 44th president of the United States committed a crime.

Police said a man wearing a mask of President Barack Obama robbed the Sheetz on Somerset Center Drive at about 3:24 a.m. on Wednesday.

Police said the man, who was armed with a handgun, demanded money and left after he was given cash.

The robber in the Obama mask was accompanied by a broom handle wearing a teleprompter mask. Hmm.

Police say the robber should be considered armed and extremely dangerous to the Constitution.
