CA Bank Robbery Foiled Because Teller Couldn’t Read Holdup Note!

Perp hoped to get at least some of this money

But before you blame the teller, it wasn’t her fault!

Robbers are never known for being brilliant.  While a few criminal masterminds are pretty sharp, most are stupid…and illiterate!

A Wells Fargo bank branch in Antioch, CA didn’t lose any money Monday after a robber entered the bank, and handed a note to one of the tellers demanding money…or they thought he was.

According to Breitbart.com,  the teller couldn’t read the robber’s handwriting, and had to call over a supervisor to help decipher the note!   While this was going on, the perp got cold feet and fled from the bank!   Breitbart reports:

 

Later, officers received a call reporting an unwanted guest at the nearby Somersville Towne Center. When they arrived on scene, they found 29-year-old Jamal Garrett who matched the description of the alleged bank robber.”

Wonder if the bank robbery and other charges he is facing will include flunking penmanship in school…
