Joint Compound Disguise, Rusty Wallace Plates Lead Police To Bank RobberS

Pennsylvanian Robert Coulson Lavery figured he had all the details planned to pull off the perfect crime: cover his face with a coat of drywall compound, rob a bank, then make his getaway in a car decorated with a Rusty Wallace souvenir license plate. Unfortunately for Mr. Lavery, a tipster recognized the Rustymobile, which was found with telltale smears of joint compound on the upholstery (cue sound of cell door slamming). [Associated Press]
