After fleeing an Upper Darby bank wearing a dreadlock wig and Rastafarian hat on Friday, a robber broke into a nearby home where he stayed for hours and helped himself to the owner's wardrobe, police said. The robbery occurred about 11 a.m., when a man in his 20s - about 6 feet tall - handed a demand note to a teller at the Alliance Bank, at 69th and Walnut streets, Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. With the man adorned in the dreadlock wig and a Rastafarian hat, the female teller smirked, thinking the note was a joke, police said.

The figure in Muslim-style female garb and dark glasses pointed a handgun at banker Brandon Smith and ordered, "Top drawer, bottom drawer. " Smith said he didn't know if the person veiled in black was a woman or a man. But those four words - the location of the teller's two cash drawers - told him that the robber knew a lot about the Bank of America branch in Port Richmond. With good reason. According to testimony Wednesday in the trial of two men charged in the killing of Philadelphia Police Sgt. Stephen Liczbinski, the person in black - veteran robber Howard Cain, 33 - had spent five months casing the branch, inside a ShopRite grocery at Aramingo and Castor Avenues.

In the future, Russians may ask one another: "Where were you when you heard Vladislav Listyev was killed?" The mafia-style slaying last week of Russia's best-known television journalist stopped the country in its tracks, much as the assassination of President John F. Kennedy did in America, and left many Russians feeling just as disillusioned. Yesterday, thousands of mourners gathered at Vagankovskoye cemetery in central Moscow to pay their last respects to Listyev. His career, which blossomed with the glasnost-era reforms, had come to a brutal end at a time when Russia's progress is threatened by rising lawlessness.
