Everett bank robber foiled by own ineptitude

Wanna know how not to rob a bank? Do what this man did:

Just after noon today, the man walked up to the Wells Fargo bank branch in the 1800 block of Broadway in Everett, pulled his shirt up over his face and walked inside, said Aaron Snell, a spokesman for the Everett Police Department. That drew the attention of passersby, who called police while the robber was in the bank.

When he ran out of the bank carrying cash, witnesses chased him. As the robber fled through the parking lot, he ran into a parked car and dropped the money, Snell said.

When police arrived, a group of around six people had tackled and detained the suspect, who was unarmed.

Police arrested him and expect to book him into jail today on suspicion of first-degree robbery.
