Man Robs Banks By Threatening Detonation Of Nuke

February 29, 2012


A man in the Washington, DC area has successfully robbed four banks after slipping tellers a note that says he'll detonate a nuclear weapon if they don't hand over the cash. I dunno, if I were the teller I think I would have at least asked to see it first. No word if the tellers that gave him money will have it taken out of their paychecks.

The Maryland-based thief has robbed four banks since December, the most recent occurring Monday. In all four incidents the suspect enters the branch, hands a teller a note demanding cash otherwise he will detonate a "nuclear weapon," and then flees on foot. He made it out of Monday's heist with an undisclosed amount of money.

Call me crazy normal, but if somebody tried robbing me with an alleged nuclear weapon I'd be a little hesitant to give them anything. Wait -- so you don't have a gun? What about a knife? No -- just the nuke? Cool. Now give me your wallet or I'll stab you.

Anybody with information about the robber are encouraged to call the po-po at 301-772-4905, Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-8477, or beat the shit out of him yourself.

Thanks to Lance, who agrees crime doesn't pay. Yeah? Well hard work and dedication don't always pan out either.

    I'd be more likely to give him money if he'd threaten to give me aids.

    Forget the note, I'm surprised he got taken seriously just looking like Hancock.

    ok, that is pretty funny...but you can't really take a guy seriously unless he has a boom stick or a chainsaw.
