Some criminals have been known to have a master plan for robberies, only to be stranded due to a lack off executing an escape plan; however the following is different and amusing at the same time. Out of all the gateway escapes, a california bank robber chose an innovative getaway vehicle that should never come in mind when robbing a bank – an electric wheelchair. What’s even more impressive and mind-boggling is that he managed to escape with it.
According to police in Palo Alto, CA, a bearded, grey-haired man in his sixties held up a branch of the Wachovia Bank with a handgun while in a wheelchair. The man had bandages on his legs, and his right leg was held out straight during the robbery. Having completed his heist, the man trundled off down the street.
Authorities are looking for a white Ford van that they suspect he may have been lifted into. Police also note that they’re not sure if the man was genuinely disabled, or if the wheelchair was part of a cunning disguise.
Clever and stupid at the same time because he managed to get away with. What do you think or make off this story?
