    Talking Save Time - Call Ahead

    Just when you think you've read it all...

    Robbers called bank for money to go

    FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Police in Connecticut say they had ample warning of a bank robbery because the two suspects called the bank ahead of time and told an employee to get a bag of money ready.

    Police arrested 27-year-old Albert Bailey and an unidentified 16-year-old boy on robbery and threatening charges Tuesday afternoon at a People's United Bank branch in Fairfield.

    Sgt. James Perez says the two Bridgeport residents showed up about 10 minutes after making the call and were met by police in the parking lot. Perez told the Connecticut Post the suspects were "not too bright."

    It's not clear if Bailey and the teen have lawyers.


    The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters.

    They must have needed some drug money. No one can be that dumb and sober.

    Maybe they needed a place to stay for a few days.

    Hopefully, it was for 'sterilization'...

    The bad thing is they will probably get off a lot easier than if they had been caught in the act, although I'm glad that no innocents were hurt or had to go through an armed robbery.

    One can only imagine the conversation that took place, something like this perhaps?

    Ring.

    "People's United Bank, how may we help you?"

    "Uhhh, this is Albert, can you get a bag of money ready for me and my buddy for pick up this afternoon?" "

    "What denomination would you like that money to be in, sir?"

    "Don't matter, just stuff all the money in the bag b***h and don't be giving me no hard time, know what I'm sayin!!!" I'll be there in 10 minutes!"

    It's an ugly sign of a "fast food" world when criminals call the bank in advance ... to order "take-out" loot.

    OK!

    You've raised the bar on DUMB robbery stories a good 1/2 dozen notches higher.

    Stories of leaving ID, of various sorts, at the scene are hereby ruled out-of-order as old-hat.
