A man carrying a long gun and wearing what appeared to be a Mitt Romney mask robbed a bank in Sterling, Virginia on Thursday.

WRC-TV's Pat Collins reported that the robbery "was not a grab-and-go type of operation" because the suspect went to all five tellers demanding money before he escaped.

Surveillance photos clearly showed the masked man as he exited the bank. Police interviewed employees at the nearby Party City to see if anyone had recently purchased a Mitt Romney mask similar to the one in the photos.

In 2010, the same bank was robbed by a person wearing a Hillary Clinton mask.
