The ole fake mustache gag fails again
Just after 9 a.m. on April 30, a man wearing sunglasses, fake mustache, black gloves, hooded sweatshirt and holding a revolver entered the Farmers and Merchants Bank in Fullerton on North Harbor Boulevard and approached a teller.

"Give me hundreds," the bandit demanded. "Give me your money."

Leaving with nearly $2,500 in cash, the man entered a parking structure within the view of a witness who alerted responding Fullerton Police Department officers.

Gilbert James Granado was nonchalantly walking in the area with a huge clue on his face.

Granado didn't know that remnants of glue from the fake mustache remained on his upper lip.

D'oh!

The officers checked the man's backpack and found the loot, which included bait money.

They also recovered a toy gun and a hoody underneath a nearby parked vehicle.

Gilbert, who was born in 1980, quickly confessed, according to an FBI report.

He's being held without bail by the U.S. Marshal and is scheduled to appear with his public defender inside Orange County's Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse on June 9 for an arraignment.

I have no relationship at all to FPD or ANY L.E., except paying taxes for their salary, and trying to avoid being a 'client', but, probably like many readers here, I have at times had to follow my personal beliefs and, try doing a good job in a craphole organization, that got well-earned negative publicity, until it (hopefully) improved, or I found an exit, and hearing "Oh, so YOU'RE one of those turds that works at Krapco, what did you f___ up TODAY???"  made it that much easier to think "Well, why stress myself trying to fight expectations?, Screw it!" Well,  I found MY exit, but if YOU'RE expecting change in the minds and deeds of FPD, unless the arresting officers here the same ones involved in the Thomas murder, perhaps a perspective of "Well, at least there ARE some FPD that can do the job we expect, INSTEAD of stomping the homeless" would help progress toward that goal. Just Sayin' . OK feel free to begin your abuse-

Congrats Fullerton Police Department! Goes a long way towards making up for murdering a skinny mentally ill homeless person named #KellyThomas. That's how you think, correct? You think you can wash away your sins by doing your job occasionally - si? Like a pedophile priest thinks he's OK by bringing souls to Jesus.

@18usc241  German, have you taken your meds today? You're a certifiable nutjob, you know that, right? Are you able to take a step back and look at how pathetic you are posting the same shit here day in and day out?

The "have you taken your meds" routine is the cornerston of this despicable law enforcement communities gameplan. Straight from the pages of the sociopath J. Edgar Hoover and his heinous methodology to discredit victims of his disgusting violence while hiding behind the color of authority. Nice try though. Next?

Think of me as a person obsessed with puting hypocrite mental midgets in federal prison right next to Mike Carona.

@18usc241  You're trolling, right? I mean, nobody can be this much of a loser as to waste so much of their life on the comment section of a free weekly newspaper, right? C'mon, the joke's up. Tell us you're just pretending to be a hyper-obsessed mental patient.
