Don't worry, former Dirty Jobs host Mike Rowe says he is not a bank robber

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Celebrity Mike Rowe has done a lot of dirty jobs, but he hasn't robbed a bank -- or so he says. 

The former Dirty Jobs host and overall television personality is taking issue with accusations he looks like a bank robber wanted in Medford, Oregon. 

Rowe says, according to the Medford Police Facebook page, "a white male wearing a ball cap and sweatshirt walked into the Chase Bank over on Stewart Street two days ago and robbed the joint."

Some say the surveillance photos look suspiciously like Mike. However, he's taken to his own Facebook to explain it's not him and he offers some thoughts on the situation...

So Medford Police responded on their own Facebook page:

"This just in, Mike Rowe from "Dirty Jobs" has been alibi'd in Monday's bank robbery. This is a real bummer, but as we say, "Its just as important to free innocent people from suspicion as to identify guilty parties." Back to the drawing board, we are now looking for a suspect wearing a Mike Rowe mask, which is brilliant, why didn't we think of that?"
