Police in Connecticut are searching for a robber disguised as President Bush.

Charles Gardner told police he was on the front steps of his home Wednesday when the robber, sporting a rubber Bush Halloween mask and a bad southern accent, put a gun to his temple and demanded cash, the Republican American newspaper reported in Thursday editions.

Gardner said he had just been to the bank to cash his $1,000 Social Security pension check when he was robbed.

The robber made off with the cash and fled in an older model white car, police said.
