Felipe Cruz fails to rob Florida bank, leaves behind name, address

A Florida thief left a Chase Bank in Pompano Beach without any money, but he manages to leave police all the information they would need to locate him: his name, address and more. The story went viral on Sunday as the FBI agents revealed the details of the case.

Felipe Cruz entered the Chase Bank in April 10 dressed in a long-sleeve shirt and ball cap. He gave the teller a note which read “Give me the 100s 50s 20s now,” the note read. “Do not set the alarm. Hurry!!!”

The teller was safe behind a bullet proof wall of glass and just stepped away from the window. Cruz panicked and raced out of the bank empty handed.

Cruz’s streak of bad luck continued as the “stick-up note” was written on the back of an online job application which had his name, address and username “CRUZFELIPE36” next to his password. No surprise, the FBI confirmed that his fingerprints were also all over the note.

FBI agent Michael Leverock issued a statement on the case: “By trying to rob a bank with a demand note written on the back of his employment search form, the robber has given us a clue. He probably should have continued looking for honest work.”
