A criminal from Greensboro, North Carolina, should question his line of work after he tried to rob a bank by going to a business that wasn’t a bank.
According to reports, the robber thought he was robbing a First National Bank, when in reality, it was the company’s training facility.
The incident took place on Tuesday afternoon after the robber walked into the facility and demanded cash.
Greensboro Police spokeswoman Susan Danielsen confirmed the story, adding that nothing was taken.
Conservative Tribune reports:
WFMY-TV reported that the suspect is still at large. Likely not for long, though, given that this isn’t exactly a criminal mastermind on par with Pablo Escobar, Bernie Madoff or Hillary Clinton. Ten bucks says this guy is eventually caught trying to steal a Whopper from a McDonald’s.
As a conservative, I’m not usually in the habit of using the threat of force to take money I haven’t earned from people who have earned it. Therefore, I must confess to being ignorant of the intricacies of the bank robbing profession.
However, assuming I were to rob a bank, one of the first things that I think I’d do is case the robbery target — see what security looked like, what kind of alarm they have, all that jazz. I would assume the most basic element of this surveillance would be, I don’t know, confirming it was in fact a bank.
If the man ever wants to rob a bank again, he better take the time to research the job rather than charging head first.
What do you think about this story? Should they show the man leniency or throw the book at him?
