Bank robber wears Jets gear during heists

Getty Images

A white male wearing a Jets jersey under a brown leather jacket robbed two Manhattan banks and tried to rob three others on Friday.

The crook got nearly $13,000 at one bank and $2,500 at another.  Though surveillance images plainly reveal his face, he remains at large.

The suspect has been linked to an April 12 bank robbery.  That makes him three for six in bank robbery attempts.

The suspect reportedly is 25.  Coincidentally, former Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is 25.  Apart from the fact that likely he has an iron-clad alibi, an accuracy rate of 50 percent is way too high for him.

And, yes, I wrote this blurb for the sole purpose of making that lame joke.

    Unfortunately, right after the Jets thief robbed the bank, he ran directly into the butt of his getaway driver and fumbled all the money away.

    Are we sure it wasn’t Titus Young disguised as Tebow?

    It was Sanchez trying to put away some last $ before hes done.

    You can rule out Santonio Holmes out; he can’t run
    away from anybody.

    The Jets never do anything good.

    Sanchez is the one who steals money while dressed as a Jet.

    If the police want to find him, just search some 17 year old socialite’s bathroom.

    the jets don’t need anymore reasons to get attention in the media. everything they do gets attention. but yet if the chiefs have the same type of thing happen to them the chiefs don’t get any media coverage. Dwayne Bowe has had some newsworthy antics in the recent past and all they have gotten is a short mention from florio during a pft live segment. J-E-T-S way too much

    Sanchez has been robbing the Jets for years…..

  10. 619sdfan4life says: May 12, 2013 6:53 PM

    It was Titus young and Orlando McClain

  11. blueballz77 says: May 12, 2013 6:55 PM

    I think Tebow just snapped!

    At first I suspected Vernon Golston but he only robbed the jets

  14. staffordsyear says: May 12, 2013 7:44 PM

    So he can get the loot and jet out.

  15. rg3andthensome says: May 12, 2013 7:45 PM

    Sanchez? Just where was he when this happened?

  16. thesteelers says: May 12, 2013 7:57 PM

    Cliff Harris?

  17. Chris Henry's Wild Ride says: May 12, 2013 8:13 PM

    Sanchize has been stealing peoples money in Jets gear for years now.

  18. Chris Henry's Wild Ride says: May 12, 2013 8:14 PM

    Dammit got beat to it lol

  19. rodge1 says: May 12, 2013 8:17 PM

    I hear Rex Ryan voluntarily came in to identify the robber’s feet from a police lineup.

  20. jpb12 says: May 12, 2013 8:38 PM

    Vernon Gholston stole from the Jets. Can’t be him

  21. seatownballers says: May 12, 2013 8:56 PM

    No way he got away being a jet

  22. Giantspunk213 says: May 12, 2013 9:01 PM

    If it was authentic nike nfl gear then he was the victim of a robbery too.

  23. lakermetskins says: May 12, 2013 9:17 PM

    A smart Giants fan.

  24. rj6976 says: May 12, 2013 9:44 PM

    Should be easy to find, can’t see anyone else wearing that crap.

  25. fearthehoody says: May 12, 2013 9:59 PM

    It couldve been Bart Scott! Hes robbed the Jets for the last 4 years

  26. atntitan says: May 12, 2013 10:09 PM

    It was Revis before his flight too tampa! Hes always been good at intercepting what he wants!

  27. j0esixpack says: May 12, 2013 10:41 PM

    It was actually a smart disguise.

    He’ll blend right in with the millions of Jets fans who also have to cover their face in shame.

  28. raji1824 says: May 12, 2013 10:54 PM

    Now that’s a news

  29. bonecrushinghits says: May 12, 2013 11:08 PM

    At least SOMEONE in a Jet’s jersey is having success. They should sign the dude.

  30. leeeroooyjeeenkiiins says: May 12, 2013 11:11 PM

    Gotta fund Rex Ryan’s appetite somehow.

  31. zeke2517 says: May 12, 2013 11:30 PM

    “It was Sanchez trying to put away some last $ before hes done.”

    Na, he’s probably good.

  32. tntfromnyc says: May 12, 2013 11:37 PM

    It was the Jets GM. He’s trying to pay off Sanchez’s ridiculous cap # this year so he can start the Geno Smith era. Oh, and to try and knock the NY Giants from the backpage again with a headline that has nothing to do with on-field performance.

  33. jolink653 says: May 13, 2013 12:00 AM

    Wow so the guy wore a Jets jersey and left his house without the customary paper bag Jets fans use to cover their faces? Living on the edge

  34. blanchonegro says: May 13, 2013 2:51 AM

    I would say he’s an embarrassment to his family for robbing banks but that happened the second he put on jets gear.

  35. ampats says: May 13, 2013 7:23 AM

    ironic because its the same thing Woody Johnson does to the Jets season ticket holders

  36. dalcow4 says: May 13, 2013 12:04 PM

    Now Flo’s weird hate-filled obsession has Tebow robbing banks…

    We just witnessed the phrase ‘Jumping The Shark’. This place is over.

  37. surfinbird1 says: May 13, 2013 1:31 PM

    Woody’s been robbin’ Jets fans for years.

  38. holdup08 says: May 13, 2013 2:22 PM

    Bart Starr, Brett Favre, Vince Lombardi, Reggie White
