(Hürriyet Newspaper, 28 February 2011)
Mahmut G. robbed a bank in Kağıthane, Istanbul, on friday
when he used a picnic gas tube made up to look like a bomb.
But he was caught when the images on the security camera
were examined and it was noticed that the index finger on his right
hand was shorter than his other fingers.
A witness stated that the suspect resembled a person whose
right hand index finger was short. Police made a detailed investi-
gation and it turned out that the robber's index finger was also
shorter than his other fingers. Based on this, Mahmut G. was
identified and captured during an operation in Eyüp. Searches
of the suspect and his home turned up only 385TL out of the
1600TL which was stolen. It was determined that Mahmut G.
spent the money on bluejeans, a coat and sneakers.
