Bank Robber Caught After Dropping Cash While Changing Clothes

A bank robber would have gotten away with it if it wasn’t for those meddling holes in his pockets that kept dropping bundles of cash.

I love a good dumb criminal story. This guy robbed a bank, and he actually got away with the cash. But shortly after that he got himself caught, because, well, dumb criminal.

So obviously, when you’re seen breaking the law, people know what you look like. They know what shirt you’re wearing, pants, probably shoes, too. So when the police are searching for someone matching that description, a smart robber would change his or her appearance. That’s exactly what this guy was trying to do, only he got himself caught again. As he was changing his shirt, he dropped some of the cash.

Clearly, when there was just a bank robbery and some guy guy is running around changing his shirt dropping stacks of cash, there’s a problem. So, helpful witnesses called it in to the police when they saw this happening. Shortly after that, police arrived to question the guy. As he was being questioned, he dropped more money. Rule of thumb, if you’re trying to hide something, try not to drop it. He was arrested, and charged with second-degree robbery. See some more details here, and a picture of the guy as well.
