I am thinking in hindsight if you are going to get 10 years for holding up a bank with a water pistol you might as well have used the real thing. Just saying. In his defence though, he told the judge he used the water pistol to make sure nobody got hurt. Naw, lucky the cops didn’t open fire and blow him to smithereens.

Attention good people of Sweden if you happen across a very fit man dressed in a large furry monkey/bear outfit the police may want a word.Seems he is wanted in connection with a bank robbery. He was last seen running through the shopping center with security guards in hot pursuit.It is unclear if he got away with any money but police later found a burning car near the crime scene. Hmm and here I thought Swedes had no sense of humor!
You know what I hate? When an elderly woman asks you for a lift to the bank and then proceeds to rob it. I really friggin hate that! Luke Weimert had no idea when police ordered him and Sandra Bathke out of his car at gunpoint that the little old lady next to him was a bank robber.While Luke had patiently waited outside the bank in his car, the 70 year had been inside pulling a gun on the teller and demanding money. As Luke drove her back to her apartment she calmly talked about the weather and the slippery roads. Seems Sandra was going to use the money to pay for her overdue rent after Luke’s mom (the landlord) gave her an eviction notice earlier that day. She had told Luke she needed a lift so she could withdraw the rent money from her account. Oh well, now she will have free room and board.
