Melbourne, December 30 : A man allegedly looted a Chicago bank, using his own pay slip, bearing his name and address, to write a threatening note.
Thomas Infante of Cary, Illinois, had passed a note to a teller in Fifth Third Bank that read "Be Quick Be Quit (sic). Give your cash or I''ll shoot," according to an FBI affidavit.
The 40-year-old, after being handed around 400 dollars, had left behind the note penned on a torn pay slip, reports the Age.
Officers had discovered the other half of the paper, printed with Infante''s name and home address, outside the bank''s front doors.
FBI spokesman Ross Rice said: "It''s fairly unusual that we see something that specifically stupid. But overall, we see a lot of strange bank robberies."
Infante had been arrested at his Cary home and later confessed to the crime. (ANI)
