Man Robs Florida Bank With A Stick
Sometimes you have to use your resources to get the job done, which is exactly what Andrew Murray must have been thinking when he walked into a SunTrust Bank in Neptune, Fla. last Friday (May 23). Murray robbed the bank with a stick instead of an actual weapon.
Witnesses say Murray was wearing a black mask and holding a stick covered in a plastic bag. He reportedly yelled, “Nobody is going to get hurt if you give me $50,000 from the vault.”
Somehow this guy managed to get off with an undisclosed amount of money. He attempted to get away in a nearby neighborhood but a postal worker reported him. A bike cop caught up with Murray and asked him to stop but he refused (of course). He was eventually shot with a Taser and arrested.
There was no mistaking that he was the bank robber either. He matched the witness description and left a lot of evidence behind. Authorities found boots, a mask, and gloves along a wooded path near the scene, and $124 in cash on Murray’s person.
The 33-year-old was taken to the Duval County Jail on charges of armed robbery and resisting arrest.
