Ore. bank robbery suspect claim posted on Facebook
PORTLAND, Ore. — An Oregon bank robbery suspect the FBI has nicknamed the “Where’s Waldo Bandit” has popped up on Facebook to claim responsibility for the crime.
The Oregonian reported one of the FBI’s bank surveillance photos of the suspect in the Tuesday robbery in Tualatin appeared on the Facebook page of Ryan Homsley of Portland.
One Facebook message said “im now a bank robber,” while another post reads, “im doing this to pay for my medical expenses. … live for today!”
The FBI and Homsley’s brother, Portland radio DJ Noah Homsley, are urging him to surrender. The DJ told KGW-TV his brother has a serious drug problem and is a diabetic.
