Bank robber helpfully leaves wallet behind

Bank robber helpfully leaves wallet behind

Robbers: often not very good at robbing
Robbers: often not very good at robbing

In the latest example of criminals making it very easy for the cops, police in the US didn't have to dust for fingerprints to find a robbery suspect - they just looked through the wallet he left behind at the scene.

Albert Vincent Perkins is charged with robbing First Federal Bank in Kansas City, Missouri. Police say he walked into the bank, handed the teller a plastic bag and ordered her to give him all of the 100 dollar bills.

Then he walked out of the bank - but left his wallet sitting on the counter.

  17. This story seems like one video that Elisa showed us in class. This guy was about to steal a bank when he got locked in and couldn't get out, and than an old lady, without noticing what was going on, got in the bank, setting this thief free.... great stories! Very interesting how men can be stupid some times... rsrsr... just kidding... ;)
