Threatening note left by 67-year-old man in UK when he robbed bank
August 13 british media said that a British robber this spring in two weeks robbed the bank three times, but only one success, the other two failures were because his handwriting is too ugly, the bank teller read the threatening note did not know what he was going to do, he sent away.
Alan Slattery, a 67-year-old british pensioner, robbed the bank three times in a row between March 18 and April 1 this year, threatening notes written by hand asking bank tellers to give him money, The Sun reported Tuesday.
Because his handwriting was so sloppy, only the teller he met for the second time understood what he meant, giving him 2,400 pounds, and two others, unaware of what he was going to do, sent him away.
A police spokesman described Slattery’s three crimes: he first robbed the bank on March 18 when he rushed into a bank in Eastbourne and handed the teller a small note. The teller couldn’t read Slatery’s scribbled handwriting, which led to his empty-handed return.
The bank staff later recognized the note, which read: ‘You can’t stop me from getting the money, consider the safety of other customers, give me 10 pounds and 20 pounds of notes.’ Less than a week later, Slattery went on the move again, robbing a bank in St Leonards, this time with a teller who feared for his safety and took out a cash sum of 2,400 pounds.
On April 1st Slattery again carried out a robbery at a bank in Hastings, and the teller failed to recognize his handwriting and questioned him, causing him to fail again. After receiving a third report, police arrested Slattery and found a large number of written threatening notes in his home.
