We don’t often post about crimes against banks, especially when they involve clients, but this story out of Kansas City deserves a wider audience.
A 70-year-old man is charged with robbing a Kansas City bank (located just down the street from the police headquarters), after handing a note to a teller indicating that he had a gun and demanding money. He then proceeded to take the money and a seat in the bank lobby.
When I say he took a seat, I don’t mean he physically removed a chair, but rather that he simply sat down.
His rationale appears to be that he would prefer to live in a jail cell than with his wife, with whom he he’d had an argument.
