PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Mike Rowe has done many jobs, but robbing a bank isn't one of them.

Or so he says.

Rowe, best known as the host of the hit TV show 'Dirty Jobs,' took to Facebook Wednesday to make it clear he is not the man caught on camera robbing a bank in Medford, Oregon Monday.

Medford police posted surveillance photos from the robbery on Facebook Tuesday, hoping the public would be able to help catch the suspect.

People quickly began pointing out that the man in the photos bears a striking resemblance to Rowe.

Rowe posted a lengthy message on Facebook to clear up any confusion, saying "The last time I was 5'6" - 5'8" I was in the 6th grade."

Rowe followed by saying he wasn't anywhere near Medford on Monday.

"PS. For what it's worth, I was in Kansas Monday, and can prove it, if need be," Rowe said.
