Man attempts to rob bank, leaves his name, unsurprisingly gets identified
Note demanding money is written on the back of robber’s job application
When it comes to robbing a bank, leaving the premises without any money is one thing, but to leave with your name written down on a piece of paper for all to read and track you down, is quite another.
However, this was the fate of one hapless robber, Felipe Cruz, in Florida, who tried - and failed - to steal all the money he could from the Chase Bank in Pompano Beach, Florida.
Mr Cruz, dressed in a long-sleeved shirt and baseball cap, made his first mistake when he strode up to a cashier’s desk that was protected with bullet-proof glass.
Unabated, he handed the cashier a hand-written note that said: “Give me the 100s 50s 20s now. Do not set the alarm. Hurry!!!”
Unfortunately for Mr Cruz, the bullet-proof glass meant that the cashier was able to confidently refuse his demands, and simply step away from the glass and the situation.
Panicked, Mr Cruz lost his gall and ran out of the bank, empty handed.
But his bad luck did not stop there. The stick-up note written by Mr Cruz was still in the hands of the cashier, and once it was turned over, it became clear that it had been written on the back of an online job application.
The application had Mr Cruz’s username written on it, reading “CRUZFELIPE36” next to his password.
Not only this, but his fingerprints were all over the note.
FBI agent Michael Leverock issued a wry statement on the case: “By trying to rob a bank with a demand note written on the back of his employment search form, the robber has given us a clue.
“He probably should have continued looking for honest work.”
