Robber in Obama mask -- or was it Reagan? -- strikes Florida fast-food restaurants

Was he Ronald Reagan or Barack Obama? Seems the people who witnessed a masked man robbing a Burger King restaurant in Lake Park, Fla., weren’t so sure.

Employees initially reported that a man wearing all-black clothing with red gloves and sporting a Ronald Reagan mask held up a Burger King at gunpoint on Tuesday morning, Palm Beach County sheriff's office spokeswoman Teri Barbera told The Palm Beach Post News.

The robber, who had a woman accomplice also wearing a mask (president not specified), demanded money from the cashier and made off with about $400, according to the Miami New Times.

Detectives who reviewed the restaurant’s surveillance video determined the gunman was actually wearing a mask resembling Obama, the Palm Beach Post reported.

There was no explanation for the presidential discrepancy.

It’s not the first time a masked Obama bandit has struck a fast-food restaurant.

On Jan. 28, a man robbed a McDonald’s in Riviera Beach, also in Palm Beach County, while dressed in black wearing an Obama mask, according to the Palm Beach Post.  This time, he had white gloves.

Sheriff’s officials didn’t immediately return a call to msnbc.com about whether they think the same person is responsible for both holdups.
