CHICAGO — A Chicago man apparently made it easy for police when, allegedly demanding $10,000 at a local bank, he compiled with a teller's request and filled out a withdrawal slip and provided a valid ID.
The Chicago Tribune reports that federal prosecutors allege Edner Flores walked into a PNC Bank branch on the city's North Side and approached the teller with a note demanding 10 grand and the words “No die Packs. Armed.”
The teller pushed the alarm button but, in an effort to stall, reportedly told the accused bank robber he needed to follow the procedure we all do: fill out a withdrawal form and provide identification. And that is just what be did, prosecutors say.
The accused robber filled out the slip with the numbers “1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9” and wrote "ten thousand dollars" in neat handwriting, the Tribune reports. He then handed over his valid, temporary state identification.
Responding police officers found him still at the counter. The 34-year-old later admitted to attempting to rob the bank, the newspaper reports, citing the federal complaint.
