Someone is getting fired.

An Arizona man who didn't realize his local bank was closed on Veteran's Day arrived only to discover that someone left the doors unlocked.

Rey Lopez entered the bank and realized no one was around. He called out and got no response.

"I was basically inside the bank and I had access to the computers, the desks, the registers, the furniture. Anybody could have gone in there and just helped themselves to whatever," Lopez told KPHO.

After snapping a selfie of his stranger encounter, he called police to get the place locked up.

Biggest missed opportunity ever.

Bonny and Clyde, they ain't.

A couple of very smart people bragged about their Aug. 24 Asheville, Ohio bank robbery by posting pictures on social media with the wads of cash they took from the bank tellers.



This is obviously not a smart idea.


According to Sostre News:

Police were helped in their investigation by the clear images showing John Mogan and Ashley Duboe hamming it up with their fortune in greenbacks. Four days after the robbery, they began posting photos of their loot, and one friend complained that Mogan " didn't hook a brother up."

Mogan and Duboe were arrested this week for the August 24 robbery. Police say they gave a note to the teller in the Ashville bank, and walked out with a tall stack of bills. He looks nervous on the surveillance video, but in the days after the heist, they both looked gleeful on their Facebook postings.



Apparently, Morgan had just gotten out of state prison for an earlier bank robbery. He put on make up to disguise his face and neck tattoos. But sadly, nothing could disguise his stupidity.

The large sword is mightier than the small sword.

Two young wannabe crooks learned that the hard way Aug. 15 as they tried to rob a convenient store with a sword, only to find a much the store owner's much bigger sword in their face.

Local news channel WPXI told the story.

Two juvenile boys ran into Perry Market on Perrysville Avenue shortly before 10 p.m., one of whom went behind the counter and demanded money, police said.

"He was like, 'Stay away. Give me money. Give me money,'" M.C. Hydare, the brother of the cashier, told Channel 11.

The other juvenile was stopped and held by a customer.

Investigators said that the juvenile who went behind the counter brandished a large silver knife that was more than one foot long. That's when the cashier pulled out the sword to defend himself and chase off the juveniles.



Here's the surveillance footage that shows the altercation:

A video was recently released of a man on a Seattle metro bus fighting back against a gunman who was robbing everyone of their cell phones. Immersed in his own phone, it wasn't until the gunman flashed the weapon in his face that he jumped into action, taking the gun from his hands and tackling him to the floor.

Monday morning, a band of armor-clad brigands held up the main tent of a renaissance faire at sword-point, making off with around $25,000. In the town of Bitche, France.

Yes, you read all of that correctly. The robbers are still at large, presumably spending their gold on ale and wenches.
