Strange Bank Robbery
It was at 09.00h on Tuesday the 18th of April that the man allegedly walked into his own bank branch and walked up to one of the employees and pulled out a knife, saying, “give me 500 euros – we’ll do this the nice way or the not so nice way.”
The reaction of the employee was to give him a piece of her mind, as she knew him, obviously, but even so she also retreated a safe distance.
With this, the man walked over to a desk, opened a drawer and calmly counted out 500 euros in notes, replacing the rest of the notes.
He then left the bank and took refuge in the house of a family, with the nickname, Las Chachimbas, whose members all have a criminal record.
However, the Guardia Civil soon turned up and arrested him, even though he tried in vain to escape via a side door.
When they took him down to the G.C. post they discovered that the man had a court order out against him, ordering him to report to the nearest prison to commence a prison sentence, so they marched him off to the nearest prison.
