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 of 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???
