LIBERTY, Pa. — A Pennsylvania man is accused of attempted bank robbery — and if poor planning were a crime, he might be charged with that, too.
Police say a man arrived at the Citizens and Northern Bank in the borough of Liberty on Thursday and waited in his car for about 20 minutes. Shortly after noon, he tried to enter the bank 100 miles west of Scranton wearing a ski mask and carrying a rifle. But the bank's Liberty branch closes at noon on Thursdays, foiling his plans.
The man fled the scene, but bank employees took note of his license plate number. A 28-year-old suspect is jailed in lieu of $50,000 bail.
This guy should find another career.

How did they determine he was going to rob the bank? He sat in his car for 20 minutes and then tried to make a deposit but the bank was closed. Other than carrying a rifle I can't see that he broke any laws other than being stupid.
He must have set his watch the wrong way for daylight savings time.
Half the town has to know this guy. 1) 100 miles west of Scraton equals nothing, 2) the bank closes at noon on Thursday???
I'm almost shocked he didn't lock himself out of his own car.

They might be dumb, but you gotta admit, they're entertaining!
EOD - Initial success or total failure
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
Ask any Leo and they will thank people like his to make their job easier.

Ok this brings up a question! Lets say you are out along the river on your bike hunting possums and you need gas, and don't have cash. You go to the bank, what are you supposed to do with the rifle?
drive-thru window or atm?
