Authorities are looking for a man wearing a cowboy hat who robbed a Lincoln Park bank Friday afternoon, the Morris County Prosecutor's Office said.

Does this mean I have to stop wearing my cowboy hat every time I go to the bank now?

First of all the economy sucks. What do you really expect. No jobs, people losing houses, jobs, etc. More power to him

It's true - the economy is bad but if that is the reason to rob and steal,nj would be looking like the ok corral ! People who rob banks do it because they are sociopathic and narcissistic!
