An accused bank robber was arrested, not so much because his robbery wasn't a success, in the first part, but because he had to go back to the bank to withdraw money. Stupidity kills.
He was headed out to his getaway taxi only to realize he didn't have money for the fare and returned to the bank to take out some cash. From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
"According to Chamblee police, the taxi driver said she picked up the [suspect] at the Chamblee MARTA station and transported him round trip to the Wells Fargo.
Upon their return to the MARTA station, the man told the driver he needed to go to the station parking lot to get money out of his car to pay for the trip.
The driver, concerned her passenger was going to skip out without paying, blocked his car with the taxi and got the attention of a MARTA officer. The officer didn't know about the bank robbery and talked Gladston into going back to the bank to withdraw money to pay for the cab ride."
