Next Time, He'll Go to a Check Casher
The bank in Saginaw, Michigan evidently had a 'no non-customer cashing policy', and when the 35 year old man tried to cash a check payable to him, they refused. That made him really angry, so he told them he had a weapon and robbed the teller who refused to cash his check.
Unfortunately for him, he forgot to take the uncashed check away with him - which bore his name as payee. Police arrested him at his home less than two hours after he robbed the bank.
