Strange Robber Stories

Stan Freberg here with a few strange robber stories, like the one about a bank robber named Rob Banks. Really. More after this. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again. Adelaide, Australia - A judge has ruled that a convicted bank robber was given an unfair trial. Can he help it if his name is Rob Banks? In a new trial, the judge says the man will be tried as "Mr. X."

And you know how banks always say, "Be sure and count your cash"? Turned out to be a bad move for a Baltimore robber named Jeff Thomas. He was caught because of that. He took so long counting, a call was made to police who arrived to find him still counting his take at the teller's window.

But the most inept of all robbers may be the man who recently held up a "Dunkin Donuts," and was caught within minutes. Turns out he lived two doors away, and made the mistake of wearing a shirt with his name on it!

That's all from the "dumb robbers" desk.
