[WISH]  Police arrested a man they say robbed a bank with a glue gun on Monday. Around 1:40 p.m. Monday, an armed robbery was reported at PNC Bank, 3003 Kentucky Ave. Bank employees said the man displayed what they thought was a gun and told them he had a bomb, while showing them something taped to his leg. The man got away, but officers from Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and the FBI Safe Streets Task Force identified him through surveillance video. Officers tracked down their suspect, Aaron Randolph, in the 3300 block of South Lockburn Street. They found all the money, along with the suspected “firearm” that was used — a glue gun. They also determined Randolph wasn’t armed with a bomb, as bank workers said he threatened.

Oh he wasn’t armed with a bomb?  No fucking kidding.  I wish I wasn’t so skillfully creative and, instead of blogging from my mom’s basement, I had to get a remedial job as a bank teller.  I’d be like the Cal Ripkin of consecutive Employee Of The Month plaques at PNC just thwarting heists left & right.  Take my man Aaron here, for example.   (more…)


[Citizens Voice]  A Butler Township man claiming to a have a bomb demanded money from a bank teller in Sugarloaf Township on Monday, only to return it minutes later after a scolding from his girlfriend, police said. Otto C. McNab Jr., 36, of 73 E. Foothills Drive, Drums, was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Ronald Swank in Mountain Top on Monday evening, hours after demanding money from a bank teller at Susquehanna Bank and telling the employee he had a bomb and was willing to detonate it. “Times are tough,” McNab told reporters as he was escorted by police into Swank’s office Monday night. “You gotta do what you have to do to support your family.” McNab entered the bank around 12:15 p.m. Monday and told the teller, “I have a bomb. Give me the money or I’m going to set it off.” He left the bank with $2,262 and returned to his vehicle, where his girlfriend sat waiting. Unaware McNab had planned to rob the bank, his girlfriend yelled at him. He returned the money and left the parking lot. Using a description of the vehicle, police located McNab in the area of state Route 309 in Butler Township. Police took McNab into custody after stopping him as he pulled into his driveway. McNab is charged with robbery, theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property and terroristic threats. McNab’s girlfriend will not face charges, police said.

No-brainer here, Otto.  You did the right thing.  Times are tough fo’ sho’, but just because you sacrificed your freedom & potentially your life to make ends meet for your loved ones doesn’t mean the end result of a couple G’s is worth a woman’s scorn.  Wait a minute…that’s probably what you got the scolding for. If so, then it’s well deserved.  Who the fuck robs a bank for $2k?   (more…)

[Fox] NEW YORK – Dawdling JFK Airport security waited 40 minutes before calling cops after a man told a ticket agent that he was Usama bin Laden and was carrying a bomb, furious law enforcement officials said Tuesday.

Christian Boncorps, 61, told an Air France ticket agent, “My name is bin Laden, and I have a bomb in my bag.”

But by the time cops were called, luggage belonging to the boozed-up suspect was already aboard a Paris-bound jet that he planned to get on, sources said.

An Air France reservation clerk asked him what he had in his bag, thinking he might be trying to smuggle more booze aboard, one source said, prompting the irked Boncorps to make his comment about the now-dead terror chief.

But instead of calling Port Authority cops immediately, the clerk escorted him to a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screening site, where workers simply put him through standard pre-flight screening procedures.

How pissed do you think Christian here is? He’s probably just one of those guys, looking for his 15 minutes of fame and came up with a rock solid plan after one of his homeless drinking buddies told him he looked like bin Laden.   (more…)
