David Oliver went into a bank robbery in Colorado Springs, came out with a sack of money and divided it between passersby - until he was caught and what was the fate of the money?
Robin Hood Modern? David Oliver in the police arrest photo
David Oliver, 65, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, was looking for a special way this past Monday to celebrate the New Year and the approaching Christmas. Eventually, he decided to go armed with a firearm to a downtown bank, threatening to steal a large amount of cash from the cashiers on the spot.
Then, carrying his cash bags in his hands, Oliver stepped out onto the street and began scattering the notes in the open air, shouting to passersby a "Merry Christmas" - media outlets across the United States reported Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the local police headquarters came to the news of the bank robbery made by an elderly white armed man. The cops rushed to the bank's branch and began scanning for the fugitive, only to discover Oliver sitting leisurely at the nearby Starbucks branch and having coffee with pleasure.
Of course, the police arrested Oliver, informing him that he had been charged with a violent bank robbery. Then they counted the money they found, and then it turned out that although he still had thousands of dollars in his possession, a large and substantial amount of money disappeared, apparently thrown into the air and quickly picked up by astonished bystanders who couldn't believe their luck.
We only point out to Oliver that if he wanted to be Robin Hood, then he shouldn't have sat down for coffee at the nearby cafe, but kept running away so that the local police didn't catch him after the first time he served as Prince of the Thieves. For its part, the police reported the robbery to its website without disclosing where the missing money went, probably because the police officers were a little less identified with the Indian robbery act.
