Bank robber passes teller note, waits outside for arrest
BATON ROUGE- Police say a man walked into a credit union Friday morning, passed a teller a robbery note and then waited with the security guard until police arrived.
He told investigators he wanted to go to jail, a police spokesman said.
The man, identified as Maurice Thompson, walked into the Neighbor's Federal Credit Union before 9:30 a.m. Friday, police said. After he slipped a note to the teller, demanding the money be brought outside, he walked over to a security guard and admitted that he planned to rob the place.
Thompson waited outside for police and again admitted planning the robbery when officers arrived. He said he knew he would be caught and wanted to go to jail.
Thompson was arrested and charged with attempted simple robbery.
