Mummy woes

    Remember the mummy bandit?

    That’s right, the guy who robbed five banks wearing gauze bandages mummy-style around his head?  Well, his alter ego, Mt. Airy resident Hiram Joseph Adams, pleaded guilty to four robberies and one attempted robbery today.  He’ll be sentenced in February, and faces up to 100 years in prison, and up to 1 million dollars in fines (his total haul? $568.00)
