Dude looks like a lady (but not quite enough, apparently)

Sounds like someone's seen a few too many screwball comedies:
Dressed in his mother's clothes and flashing her driver’s license, a Somerset County man is accused of trying to withdraw $700 from the woman's bank account, police said today.

Tita Nyambi, 25, of Crown Road in Franklin, is accused of multiple offenses, including third-degree forgery and attempted theft by deception for the incident that occurred Monday at Chase Bank in Franklin, according to court papers.


Nyambi pulled into the bank’s drive-thru lane on Elizabeth Avenue at 1:22 p.m., Sgt. Philip Rizzo said. He was wearing his mother’s pink blouse, her black coat and head scarf and tried to speak in a high-pitched voice, according to the affidavit Detective Brian Stillwell filed in Superior Court.
His one mistake was that he failed to wear her glasses. No disguise is complete without glasses. Fools 'em every time.
