Those involved in the investigation believe the face to be fake in a donut shop robbery in New Hampshire but the gun to be real.
The incident occurred Tuesday at the Dunkin’ Donuts on Lowell Road in Salem just after 8 p.m., WMUR reported.
Authorities advise that the stick up artist, armed with what appeared to be a small semi-automatic pistol, was garbed in a black Adidas warm up, black pants, gloves, and a face covering mask of President Obama when he came in and demanded money.
Police hope that the robber, who fled the scene in a small Toyota with no license plate, will be easy to track down due to the choice of mask.
However, this is not the first Obama impersonator who has turned to armed robbery in the area. Just over a year ago, John Griffin, 52, pulled off a daylight attack on a Bank of America in nearby Newport.
Prior to that, a string of at least four fast food restaurants in Palm Beach County, Florida were robbed by a thin man equipped with a handgun and a slip on Obama likeness.
