The man who tried to rob a Dublin bank this morning was wearing a Dr- Seuss type hat.
Dublin police say 36- year old Jeffrey Dwayne Cook entered the First National Bank and demanded money around nine- forty this morning.
But the teller did NOT hand over any cash, and the suspect fled on foot.
The bank is right across the road from the Dublin police department, so officers were on the scene in less than a minute.
A Pulaski County sheriff's deputy nabbed Cook about seven minutes later.
When Cook was later taken to jail, he'd swapped his striped hat for a ball cap.
