We have all heard of bank robberies-- robber walks into the bank flashing a dangerous weapon, steals cash, and dashes for an escape as the spectators are immobilized by fear. But not this 65-year-old man, who has broken the bank robbery norm with his personal twist of festive.
Colorado Springs bore witness to a weird robbery during the festive season as the robber seemed keener to distribute the money to the public rather than keeping it for himself.
The incident took place on December 23, at the Academy Bank on 1 S. Tejon St in Colorado Springs when David Wayne Oliver walked into the bank claiming to have a weapon. The 65-year-old man took an undisclosed amount of cash, reported 11 News.
Dion Pascale, a witness to the robbery narrated the entire episode to 11 News. He said that after stealing the cash, David ‘started throwing money out of the bag and then said Merry Christmas’. ‘He robbed the bank, came out, threw the money all over the place,’ Pascale added.
After throwing the money all around, the 65-year-old robber made his way to the local Starbucks where he waited for the cops. According to Pascale, he then ‘sat down and waited for the cops. It was almost like he wanted it to happen [an arrest]’.
The obvious ensued-- the cops arrived, identified David Wayne Oliver and took him into custody. The Colorado Springs Police said that David was booked into the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center.
