    Strange but True Dept: Bank Robber Gives Teller his ID

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- A 34-year-old man is in custody after authorities say he gave a teller his account number and showed her his picture ID before robbing an Anchorage bank.

    The FBI says Jarell Paul Arnold of Anchorage is being held on federal bank robbery charges.

    The FBI alleges Arnold walked into an Alaska USA Federal Credit Union branch Friday and inquired about the balance on his account. The teller asked for his name, account number and ID.

    Authorities say he complied, and then handed over a receipt with a note on the back that said he had a gun and demanded money.

    The FBI says he got away with about $600. Authorities arrested Arnold on Monday. A message left after business hours Wednesday with Arnold's public defender, Michael Dieni, was not immediately returned.

    Court records say Arnold was sentenced to 57 months in prison for bank robbery in 2004.

    That was my original thought, easy way to get a free ride. Too bad the other inmates will find out how stupid he is and will "buddy" up to him.
