The suspect struck Woodforest National Bank in Houston on July 8, handing a teller a piece of notebook paper with his written demands, cops said.
“I didn’t get a stimulus or that 10k loan,” his demand note read. “I lost my business to Covid so please make this easy and comply,” it continued.
The Texas bank robber passed a teller a note demanding cash that claimed he was pulling the job because he didn’t get a coronavirus stimulus check or a government loan.
In the note, the crook threatened to open fire if the teller made “any suspicious moves.”
“I don’t wanna hurt nobody but will if I have to,” the note read. “Don’t make anything noticeable!”
It’s unclear if the crook was actually carrying a gun, according to police.
The teller didn’t see one, but feeling threatened, gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash.
