Believing gun was fake, bank teller refuses to hand over cash

Recommended Posts

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A man with a gun entered the Wells Fargo on Lenox Avenue on Friday afternoon, but left without any money and was quickly arrested by a Florida High Patrol trooper who was working off-duty at the bank.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said the man entered the bank just before 1 p.m., walked up to a teller with a gun and demanded money. The teller, who did not believe the gun was real, did not give him any money and the man turned and walked out.

Alerting an FHP trooper working in the lobby to the robbery attempt, he followed the man out and stopped the man in the parking lot and held him until JSO arrived to take him into custody. His name has not yet been released.

There were no customers in the bank at the time and there were no injuries.

That would get a teller fired - reason is I have a relative that has been a bank teller for over 20 years and policy at every bank is that in any attempt regardless of gun or no gun or anything. Any demands like they follow just observe everything and give them what they want. It isn't worth a risk over a small amount of cash they normally get away with and that is again Bank policies at ALL banks!

Though I agree, the bank will get crucified in the media if they fire the teller.
