Wow, this guy is looking at twenty years in prison for only $340. He doesn't seem to be exactly a criminal mastermind by the way he was caught and is going to have a long time to think about what he has done

To make five years of prison for an amount of 1052 dollars that means being too id.ot. I do not understand why some people risk in this way. It was better to look for a job, than to rob a casino. It's ridiculous. He believed he would be enriched if he succeeds in robbing that casino. Big mistake for his life.

Another smart cookie. He robbed a bank for the whole sum of 1052 USD.
And like that wasnt enough, he got caught for using the bait as they said,
from the bank. What more do they needed after that, to arrest him.

You can say also that he was unlucky, cause the manager had seen his face
online...

I personally think this guy is very foolish, to rob bank for just more than one thousand of dollars is very very stupid, it is so small amount of money not need to risk to go to jail, if steal then steal million then i understand situation, but this giy not good with brains

I have to admit, that this is the first time i heard about the bait bills.
I only knew about the exploding ones, that the banks are using,
but this was the first time i read about it.
How easy though it is to check if the baits have been used...

When I read that he robbed the bank for $1052, I got confused...wait am I reading that right?
Does it say that this guy robbed a bank for $1052? What bank was it?How did this happen? Who does that? Anyway, if I had $1052 that I know I can't spend anywhere I'd keep them for a while and then spend them somewhere where its not gonna come back to you. He just wanted to play some poker. He's gonna play in jail...

I also think like a bblegumtrb that it is something strange i rwad because to rob bank for 1052 dollars is very small money and also i not understand why 52 dollara, ok to have 1000, but why these 52 dollara, maybe 15 cents more Big Smile

All banks have different methods to mark some money, in the situation where they are robbed, the police would catch the thieves much faster. In America there are many rural areas with smaller banks, who are robbed ever since the wild west. Because of this they were only 1052 dollars. Smile and many years of prison Big Smile for a ridiculous amount.

He went in for the robbery, in the eyes of the law it does not matter if he robbed 20 bucks or 20k.
