Latest mask used during robbery: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

In a tradition that probably hit its pop culture pinnacle thanks to Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze surf heist film "Point Break" and it's ex-presidents, there's another use of cartoon masks in the news.

This time, it's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Raphael. Wisconsin police are looking for someone who wore this type of mask last week to rob a Wendy's.

The person in the Raphael mask was accompanied by another masked robber wearing... a black ski mask. Did one of them have more of a desire to show some flair?

One had a gun and the two subdued the Wendy's employees with duct tape before leaving with their ill-gotten gains. (No word on if they'd been watching "The Town.")
