Sadly, he'll probably be picked up by the cops in the next couple of days buying a case of Thunderbird to celebrate.

I'll tell you where I dropped him off if your reward for information leading to an arrest is higher than $1,000, douchebags....

Sometimes I wonder how I'd be described if I robbed a bank. What a terrible way to find out you have bad hygiene and yellow teeth.

Sounds like they want you to give back the $1,000 too... and they'll probably charge you with accessory too.

"That $1,000 belongs to the bank," Capitola Sgt. Mark Gonzalez said.

Step one: accept an offer of $1000 to give a homeless guy who just robbed a bank a ride to santa cruz
Step two: drive homeless guy out into desert, take your $1000, and the rest of the money
Step three: profit!

Lat line: "He may be a transient."

No kidding. He paid $1000 to transit out of town.

Robbing banks is not a crime, it's just karma.

I'm sleep deprived and didn't make the sarcasm apparent, my bad... Obviously I wouldn't rat myself out as the driver or if I knew anything, but I would definitely recall observing a man 'fitting the description' occupying the area I knew he was in if they waved additional (any, actually) monies in front of me...

I wonder if the money is worth it when the police finger you as an accomplice.

And the old 'I didn't rob anybody, I just drove the get-away car' excuse doesn't really pan out, anymore

Pretty sure they're not going to inspire any do-gooders with the logic that "that money belongs to the bank." Nobody farking cares about the bank, dude - try puppies or kids with cancer next time.

It's cute the way the cops assume any money he spends between now and his capture belongs to the bank.
 
2010-10-31 09:49:38 AM
HIGH FIVE!
 
2010-10-31 09:50:56 AM
I like to look at this as he's just getting back all his ATM fees that he was robbed for.

Spirit Hammer: It's cute the way the cops assume any money he spends between now and his capture belongs to the bank.

That's a very good point. If he planned this method of getaway in advance, he might well have had a grand on him for that purpose and not relied on the assumption of a successful robbery.

Also, I believe that it was Mark Gonzales that did the robbery, in disguise. Why else would he use his position in law enforcement to sabotage the investigation and discourage the driver from coming forward by implicitly threatening to take back the $1,000?

/I also heard that Mark Gonzales raped and murdered a woman in 1990, but that might just be one of those internet rumours.

Once again showing that the free enterprise system works.

"That $1000 belongs to the bank". I guess the rest must belong to the robber!

This is why I spend my free time hanging around near banks. Who's he gonna tell when I rob him at gun point?

i've got to believe the bank robber already had a thousand dollars set aside for his escape and it was not this banks money at all.

This. They steal hundreds of billions, and nobody goes to jail. Why not let a hobo have a few grand?

This guy is actually pretty clever, a strong arm robbery has a lenient sentence compared to armed robbery.

I'll just leave this here for you that are ignorant. Honestly, I would at least think you would google something instead of just assuming it doesn't exist because you haven't heard of it.

So the robber was either a chronic masturbator... or a bowler.

The bum did exactly what I've been saying for years. You're a bum living on the street, no shelter, no food. Why not rob a bank? You get away with it, you get to eat and get a room, you get caught, you get to eat and have a room. Win either way no?

Or was he a criminal master mind with fake yellow teeth who sprayed himsef with moose urine to appear to be a bum.

Are you going to make us cry too? There are other ways to make people help you beside appealing to guilt and morality. How about don't take money from thieves, its the right thing to do. Sergeant Retardo.

I bet if he offered the officer money, he'd take the bribe and walk away

Gotta love my town...

In this tourist trap a grand gets you about five meals at the local restaurants, three tanks of gas, and a slice down on Pacific. Oh, and maybe a month of utilities paid if you're lucky.
