Okeechobee man foiled in bank robbery attempt by lack of bag for money
By Lamaur Stancil





OKEECHOBEE COUNTY (Fla.) A man was foiled in his attempt to rob a bank because he did not bring a bag with him, according to the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office.

Joseph Alan Price, 61, of the 3700 block of Southeast Highway 441, Okeechobee, walked into the PNC Bank in the 2800 block of South Highway 441 about 2:42 p.m. Friday, deputies said. He had written a note demanding cash and handed it to a teller, the Sheriff's Office said. The note instructed the teller to put the cash in a bag, but she told Price she didn't have a bag. Price, who did not show a weapon, pointed to the note, but the teller again told him she had no bag. Empty-handed, Price left the bank and hopped on a bicycle he had left in a wooded area near the building.

A bank alarm was activated and a sheriff's lieutenant had Price in custody within seven minutes, Sheriff Paul May said. ......(more)

pocket pointing his finger to make it look like he had a gun.

3. You can thank the liberal media for that ...
everybody knows that banks keep all the money in bags with a big dollar sign on them ...

5. I love that movie...
one of the best scenes in Take the Money and Run. Also the scene with the gun made out of soap that melts in the rain. Those early movies were some of his best works.

I'm biased because it was my high school band.

My driver training teacher was one of the 'chain gang' in the movie, our summer driving schedule had to be modified to fit around his filming.
