We thought we'd have to wait for a Point Break sequel to see someone in an Obama mask pull off a robbery, but the insanity of Florida has pulled through where Hollywood hasn't. Police are on the hunt for a man who held up a Riviera Beach McDonald's this weekend. Unlike the real Obama, this impostor wasn't interested in mere "change." He walked off with $1,000 in cash.
The incident happened at about 6:30 a.m. on Saturday. The man walked in dressed in all black save for the presidential mask. He interrupted the early morning crew from their hash brown frying duties, and threatened them at gunpoint.
According to WPBF, he then asked the manager to open the safe and empty all the cash into a cloth bag.
The man then walked off with the cash and is still on the run.
