When a man robbed a Woodbridge bank Tuesday afternoon, one thing stood out as law enforcement agencies began gathering information: He was wearing a white afro wig.

That description, along with the man's gray jacket, led authorities to make a likely connection with a Stockton robbery about half an hour earlier. That suspect had also worn a not-so-common white afro wig.

    Not so Native- you are a bit misinformed. As a 5th generation Lodian I hardly know anyone anymore. I'm in my 40's and back 20+ years ago that was true, but not anymore. Sure, I can & do see people throughout town but not like the gool ol daze. It's not a bad thing, just the paving over of the best soil in the valley.

    Lodi is such a small town, and everyone knows everyone, that it is IMPERATIVE that you wear a disguise lest someone ask you "Hey, how's the family?" whilst sticking them up!

    The REAL Funny part is .. the guy wearing the "afro" wig was later arrested .. his natural hair style??? an afro ... apparently, a not-so-clever disguise.

    Wearing a disguise is a good idea, it helps hide your identity.
