Scatter-cash bank robber yells "Merry Xmas!"

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"An alleged bank robber in Colorado apparently wanted to spread some Christmas joy before he was arrested Monday.

"Witnesses say they saw a man throw money from a bag onto a street in Colorado Springs while yelling “Merry Christmas”, KKTV reported. "

"Mr Pascale said bystanders retrieved some of the cash and returned it to the bank as Oliver walked to the Starbucks, sat down and appeared to be waiting for police to arrest him, according to KKTV.

"The Denver Post quoted police as saying "thousands of dollars" were still missing, adding there was no indication a weapon was used in the heist."

The gun probably went flying too with the money and will stay missing along with the thousands of dollars not handed back.

It's instances like these that make me think the guy needed health care, and thought the only way to get it was to go to prison.

I think you miss read as it said that he did not use a weapon to rob the bank.

I had an uncle who used to joke if he didn't have enough money to retire he'd just rob a bank. That way he'd be guaranteed healthcare, 3 meals a day and a bed for the rest of his life, once he was caught.
