Mitt Romney was randomly spotted again on Thursday—though this time it wasn't the real Mitt Romney.

In only the second strangest Romney sighting this week, a man wearing a mask depicting the former Republican presidential candidate was caught on camera robbing a Wells Fargo bank in Sterling, Va.

Local officials haven't said how much money the fake Romney had stolen.

Investigators called the robbery unusual because the suspect, dressed in a Florida State sweatshirt and wielding a gun, spent more time than normal inside the bank. The robber held up all five tellers—leaving only the cash at the drive-through window untouched, according to NBC-4 TV in Washington, D.C.

Strangely, it's not the first time this bank branch has been held up by a famous face. As the local NBC affiliate notes, a robber wearing a Hillary Clinton mask held up the same bank two years ago.

As of now, there are no suspects in the robbery. Local police were questioning store clerks at a nearby Party City, where Romney masks happened to be on sale.
