    Even robbers are feeling the recession; opting for sharpies instead of ski masks

    Police Nab Marked Men

    Pair of alleged Iowa burglars opted for black Sharpie disguise

    OCTOBER 28--Meet Matthew McNelly and Joey Miller. The Iowa men were arrested Friday night on attempted burglary charges after a 911 caller told cops that two hoodie-wearing males were trying to enter his apartment. During a subsequent traffic stop (McNelly, 23, and Miller, 20, were traveling in a 1994 Buick Roadmaster), Carroll Police Department officers collared the men, both of whom had their faces painted. Police Chief Jeff Cayler is unsure why McNelly and Miller, pictured in the below mug shots, opted for the Sharpie marker look, but surmised that they may have been trying to intimidate the apartment's occupant. Or perhaps ski masks are a bit pricey.

    Who did they think they were, Batman and Robin? The guy on the left kind of looks like Batman to me. Someone needs to tell them that the dynamic duo fought against crime not for it.

    That's not the biggest blank space problem with their craniums.
