Man Arrested For Returning Stolen Money To Bank…He Robbed
A man in Charlotte, North Carolina was arrested after returning stolen money to a bank…that he robbed.
According to published reports, Everette Edgeworth was apprehended by police when he tried to return the money to the Fifth Third bank he’d robbed earlier in the day.
Relatives of Edgeworth state that the alleged robber is “scared to death of prison” and hasn’t been the same since he was released over a year and a half ago. The relatives also explained that bringing the money back was likely his way of trying to avoid returning again.
Although Edgeworth may have thought he had a “get out of jail free” card with his gesture, police state that good intentions after the fact doesn’t mean you can take the crime itself back and they place Edgeworth back in jail.
Family members state that the robbery was driven by the pressure of having no money, nobody in his life and nowhere to go. They also state Edgeworth has been trying hard to find a job but nobody would hire him.
Edgeworth is charged with bank robbery and if convicted, he could receive a sentence of 20 years in prison.
