The Duct Tape Bandit
The employees of Shamrock Liquors in Ashland, Kentucky, can’t stop laughing about what happened on Friday August 10th, 2007 at their store. Police say Kasey Kazee walked into the store with duct tape wrapped around his head to conceal his face. Fortunately, store manager Bill Steele had a wooden club wrapped with duct tape that eventually sent the suspect fleeing the store.
Store employee Craig Miller says he chased Kazee to the parking lot, tackled him and held him in a choke position until police arrived. An unidentified customer also helped. Kazee said in a jailhouse interview that police got the wrong man. Kazee also says he has no memory of going in to the liquor store and of police removing the duct tape. Steele says Kazee did get away with two rolls of change before Steele could grab his club. Police found much of that change in the parking lot.
