Man in Jets jersey holds up bank


At least Mark Sanchez has a sense of humor.

Manhattan Beach Police are trying to identify a bank robber wearing a green “Mark Sanchez” New York Jets jersey.

The man handed a note demanding money to a teller at Chase Bank, 201 Manhattan Beach Blvd. at 8:50 a.m. Monday. The teller handed over cash.

The balding man is white, 60 to 65 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, with a heavy build. He had slicked back white hair.

On his twitter page, Sanchez tweeted “I’m being set up. I swear it wasn’t me.”

Sanchez then asked fans to give him a good title for the article. Here are some samples:

“That’s Nacho Money”
“Robber Attempts QB Sneak”
“Robber Jets away with cash
“Sanchez Demands a Hand-off”
“Gang Green Bandit Strikes Local Bank”
“Sanchez Sees Future, Demands Raise”

To which Sanchez replied: You guys are cracking me up!
