A man wearing a President Barack Obama mask, a suit coat, tie and jeans, was recorded Wednesday morning on surveillance video robbing a Bank of America in Merrimack, N.H..

Officers responded after the man demanded money from a teller, then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to the Merrimack Patch.

Witnesses helped determined the direction the man traveled and police arrested John Griffin, 52, of Newport, N.H., the Patch reported. While he never pulled a gun during the robbery, he was apprehended with a semi-automatic pistol and ammunition in his possession.

Griffin was charged with robbery and is being held on $75,000 bond pending a Sept. 20 court appearance.

No word yet on whether liberals will charge Griffin with racism for mocking the president.
