It is truly amazing with the camera technology available today that a clear photo of the suspect could not be attained. Especially in a bank where the camera is pointed at a fixed location.

If that guy is your neighbor or co-worker, you're definitely going to recognize him. This mugshot is a lot more clear than some of the ones we post.

Come on Adam, the perps face is completely in shadow. I can take a better photo with my webcam! Yes he may be somewhat recognizable by body shape and he appears to be Caucasian but that's about it..

I agree that banks and stores should get better cameras. A $100 Sony with a nice external hard drive could do a better job. But it's certainly better than this recent photo from a local Walmart. I don't think this guy's mom would even recognize him. http://mountpleasant-sc.patch.com/articles/police-search-for-auto-theft-suspects#photo-13382396
