Thinking Small…Dollar Bandit Commits Smallest Bank Robbery Ever

dollar banditHave things gotten so bad with the economy and have people become so disenfranchised that even the criminals won’t make a proper effort to commit a crime?  Don’t get us wrong, we like the idea of lazy criminals and less crime, but this next story is a little bit ridiculous.  A Pennsylvania man wanted so badly to go back to jail, that he decided to rob a bank and purposely get caught.  Seriously, he actually wanted to go back to jail.  So earlier this week, he walked into an Ameriserv in Northern Cambria, Pennsylvania and handed the teller a note demanding…get this…$1. Unprepared for such a strange demand the teller wasn’t sure what to do.  The note even identified the name of the prison that he preferred to be placed.  After talking to another employee of the bank and the manager, another teller finally stepped in and gave the man $1 of their own money. 

Authorities finally arrived and placed the man in custody.  He is currently being held on a $50,000 bail bond.  Unfortunately for him, at 10%, he is about $4,999 short.  Read the original story below.
