Lloyds bank Robbery goes wrong

A 34-year-old man from Bristol has been arrested following a failed attempt to rob Lloyds in Gloucester.

The man walked into the branch and wrote; "Put all your muny in this bag."

While standing in line, waiting to give his note to the cashier, he began to worry that someone had seen him write the note and might call the police before he reached the cashier's window.

So he left the Lloyds bank and crossed the street to the Barclays bank. After waiting a few minutes in line, he handed his note to the young Barclays cashier.

She read it and, surmising from his spelling errors that he wasn't the brightest, told him that she could not accept his note because it was written on a Lloyds deposit slip and that he would either have to fill out a Barclays deposit slip or go back to Lloyds.

Looking somewhat defeated, the man said, "OK" and left. He was then arrested a few minutes later, as astonishingly he was waiting in line back at the Lloyds bank across the street.
