buccaneerWANTED IN KENT —
We’ll admit — we had fun naming this bank robber who kind of resembles a famous pirate.

The ‘Captain Jack Sparrow Crook’ would have worked, but we liked ‘Buccaneer Bandit’ the best.

He robbed the Key Bank in the Panther Lake area last week, handing a threatening note to the teller, and taking off with his plundered loot.

Kent Asst. Police Chief Pat Lowery says, “What made him rather unique looking was a set of dreadlocks, a blue bandana over his head, and a striking similarity to a pirate.”
