James Duke, 28, didn't get a whole lot from two January robberies -- but his tactics apparently suited him well, at least in the beginning. Armed in women's clothing and with a long-barreled gun, police say he snagged a total of $316.

The outfit, however, made it pretty easy to connect him to other robberies once he was caught.

7. The Ink-Stained Robber

No, Isadore Glover, 21, was not a journalist desperate for cash. He did, however, fall victim to an exploding ink device after he forced a North Grand Boulevard bank to give him $240.

And witnesses soon after apparently saw him trying to get rid of the stained money -- not quick enough.

Continue for more Missouri bandits.
