As if Madea going to jail on the big screen wasn’t ridiculous enough, a man in Mississippi sought to act out the story line. While millions of people across the country took advantage of Black Friday sales, a criminal robbed a bank, dressed as Tyler Perry’s infamous character.
Marvin Webb, 45, robbed the First Security Bank in Robinsonville, last Friday. Webb, who is also a person of interest in a robbery that occurred in late October , stood confident and tall in drag. Dressed in a scarf, a woman’s coat, and a hand bag, Webb actually got away with some money.
A picture taken from a bank surveillance camera circulated around the Robinsonville community, while police got to work identifying the suspect. He was eventually nabbed, and faces charges in Tunica County.
Due to the obvious resemblance to the popular and mischievous Perry character, the Robinsonville police humorously named the investigation “Operation Madea.”
The real Madea was last seen in June, in Perry’s film Madea’s Witness Protection. It’s a safe bet that the film director won’t be casting the voluptuous perpetrator in his forthcoming, Tyler Perry’s Temptation: The Marriage Counselor, scheduled for release next spring.
