Robber gets only candy from bank

UPI News Service, 03/13/2013 

Police in New York said an attempted bank robber got away with just a handful of lollipops after a teller refused to submit to his demand for cash.

Investigators said the suspect walked into the Chase branch in the Garment District around 10 a.m. Friday and handed a note to a teller reading: "I have a bomb. Give me some money now"

Teller Melinda Lewis told the man she doesn't read notes and instructed him to fill out a withdrawal slip, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

The man wrote the same note on the slip and Lewis instructed him to swipe his bank card while telling a colleague in Spanish that she was being robbed.

"Ma'am, I ain't got no time for this," the robber was quoted as saying before fleeing with a fistful of lollipops.

Police said the suspect -- who has not been identified is believed to have taken a total of about $300 in robberies at a Fed Ex office, Modell's sporting goods store and an IHOP restaurant.
