A gender-bender bank robber has been jailed for six years after a court heard his disguise as a woman was so unconvincing it led police straight to him.
The 42-year-old - wearing a woman's wig, leggings, painted nails, fake boobs and a skin-tight mini dress - fled with 24,000 GBP after holding up a bank in Unterretzbach, Austria, at gunpoint.
But police - who later arrested him in the Czech Republic - were flooded with eye-witness accounts tracking his movements by people who were astonished at his get up.
"He didn't make a very credible woman and everyone remembered exactly where and when they had seen him," police told the court in Korneuburg.
