According to a report on the 9th local time on the US “Business Insider” website, Georgia authorities arrested a man who was charged with robbing a bank last month. The man used his positive diagnosis of the new coronavirus to coerce the staff into trying to steal money.
According to information released by the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office, on November 28, 51-year-old Victor Crowley walked into a Chase Bank in Riverdale, Georgia, and handed a note to a bank employee. Ask them to give him the money.
The source said: “The suspect did not take out a weapon, but claimed that his Coronavirus test result was positive. If the bank does not comply with his request, he will start to infect everyone in the branch.”
According to the police, when the staff called the police, the robber did not take the cash when he fled the bank. He was arrested at his home on Thursday, and he told the authorities that he tried to rob the bank to get $2,000 to pay the bill.
US “Newsweek” reported that Crowley is facing criminal charges and is currently being held in Clayton County Prison, which the authorities call “the most severe paramilitary prison in Georgia.”
