HILLSBORO, Ore. —Police say a bank robbery attempt in Hillsboro failed after a teller told the woman who handed her a threatening note that she couldn’t read the handwriting.
According to police, a 30-year-old woman walked into a Wells Fargo bank branch Wednesday and handed a teller a note that said, “Need $300 or I’ll kill you. I’m serious.”
The teller told the woman she couldn’t read the writing. While the woman stepped away to rewrite her note on a bank slip, the teller hit a silent alarm and the bank manager intervened, asking the woman how he could help her.
Police and FBI agents soon arrived and arrested the woman; police say she was under the influence of drugs.
Quelle surprise. Who robs a bank for $300?
What a place this is. I’d love to know if the teller truly couldn’t read this Bank Robber Academy drop-out’s handwriting, or if it was an inspired bit of stalling?
