No Bag, No Cash:Fla. Bank Robber ‘Forgot Money Bag’


OKEECHOBEE, Fla. –“Bagman” --- Authorities in Florida said a man attempting to rob a local bank left empty-handed after he forgot to bring his own money bag to the heist.

The Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office said Joseph Price, 61, handed a note to a teller at the PNC Bank in Okeechobee shortly after 2:30 p.m. Friday demanding a sack full of cash, TCPalm.com reported Tuesday.

However, Price left empty-handed after the teller told him she did not have a bag, investigators said.

The sheriff's office said Price left the scene on a bicycle (yes, a bicycle) and was apprehended within 7 minutes.

"This man was apprehended very quickly," Sheriff Paul May said. "A good description was given by bank personnel, [the lieutenant] was in the right place and the suspect is in jail, which is the right place for him."

Price was taken to the Okeechobee County Jail on a charge of attempted bank robbery. He was ordered held without bail.

At the time of this report it was unclear if Price had retained a lawyer or his common sense.

What we do know is Price is a moron for not bringing the proper tools to a heist. Who forgets to bring a bag to a robbery? That  would be like a surgeon forgetting to bring a scalpel to a surgery.

Perhaps Price was not cut out to be a thief after all. Perhaps his true calling is that of a bag boy at a local a supermarket. At any rate, he will have plenty of time to consider his career choices while he sits in jail.
