Bank Robber Caught While Heading Back Into Bank to Withdraw Taxi Fare

Some people are so stupid they deserve to be arrested. Like an accused bank robber from Atlanta, Georgia, whose failed bank robbery saw him head out to his getaway taxi—only to realize he didn't have any money for the fare and return to the bank to take out some cash.

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"According to Chamblee police, the taxi driver said she picked up the [suspect] at the Chamblee MARTA station and transported him round trip to the Wells Fargo.

Upon their return to the MARTA station, the man told the driver he needed to go to the station parking lot to get money out of his car to pay for the trip.

The driver, concerned her passenger was going to skip out without paying, blocked his car with the taxi and got the attention of a MARTA officer. The officer didn't know about the bank robbery and talked Gladston into going back to the bank to withdraw money to pay for the cab ride."


Oddly enough, police officers had by this point arrived at the scene and immediately arrested the suspect. If only he'd been a good bank robber and actually managed to steal some cash. [AJC via Neatorama; Image: 401K]
