Did A Bank Robber Leave His Address With The Staff?

Police in Chicago arrested a man yesterday after he allegedly robbed a bank by using a threatening note written on the back of his own pay cheque.


According to police, the 40-year-old man, Thomas Infante, walked into the bank and proceeded to give a staff member a note which said, ‘Be Quick…Give me your cash or I’ll shoot’.

He then successfully fled with $400.

However, he left half of his note behind as he made his escape.

Detectives then found the other half of the slip, which included his name and home address, outside the bank’s front doors.

Thomas Infante was subsequently arrested at his home in Cary, Illinois.

If Infante is convicted of bank robbery he will face a sentence ofย  up to 20 years in prison.

Could a robber really be so dumb as to leave his details behind or have I created this story as a hoax to fool you?

What do you think???

    I know for a fact that Tommy the bank robber left his note on his paycheck stub at the bank. And it was $397 not $400. He is my ex son-in-law! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I read this on CNN I think it was. Unbelieveable but true!

    Normally I think all of these stories are hoaxes but it is a new year so I am going to say this one is true.

    Happy New Year to everyone.
