Boyd Grand Jury Indicts Accused `Duct Tape Bandit'

CATLETTSBURG, Ky. (AP) - The legal mess is getting stickier for the man known in northeastern Kentucky as the "Duct Tape Bandit."

The liquor store robbery suspect -- who's accused of wrapping his head in duct tape to conceal his identity -- has been indicted by a grand jury on a robbery charge.

24-year-old Kasey Kazee was indicted yesterday by a Boyd County
grand jury on one count of first-degree robbery and a persistent felony offender count.

According to police, Kazee entered an Ashland liquor store recently with his entire face and head wrapped in duct tape except for openings for his eyes and mouth.

Police say Kazee was tackled by a store employee in the parking lot before getting away. Kazee is being held in the Boyd County Detention Center.

    I would have to say that I totally agree with you "me". I think that it is safe to say that there is no brain power there! They tackled him, cut the duct tape off of his head, and took him to jail, but he still had the nerve to say on public television that it is not him. I cannot believe what this world is coming to. It is unbelievable.

    Not a lot of brain power here! Sorry, but couldn't pulling that off made him wish he'd gotten more liquor for his troubles, or at least got to drink it before he had to "come untaped"!!
