67 Year Old Florida Man Caught Robbing Bank for Rent Money
A 67-year-old Florida man, Michael Terry Noojin, tried his hand at bank robbery, all for the noble cause of covering his rent. Donning a fashionable ensemble of sailboat and yellow polo, jeans, and white shoes, he strolled into a Bank of America in Hollywood, Florida, and attempted to score $650.
According to the New York Post, Noojin slid a brown plastic bag to a teller, claiming he had a gun and that she should pack the bag with cash. The teller’s response? Cricket sounds. Not one to be brushed off, Noojin amped up the drama, reiterating his gun-wielding position. However, the teller, squinting with disbelief, saw no gun and locked up her cash drawer. Fellow tellers joined the cash fortress, pushing the emergency alarm button for good measure. Security game strong, right?
Old Florida Man Plan:
With his grand heist in shambles, Noojin made a strategic exit. In a miraculous twist, his fashionable bird shirt and his misguided adventure caught the eye of someone who promptly reported him to the police.
Facing the heat, Old Florida Man Noojin spilled the beans in a “non-custodial interview.” It turns out, he wasn’t destined to be a career criminal; he just needed rent money. His band-aid, which matched the tellers’ sketch, and the still-present plastic bag in his pocket were like trophies from his crime. Smooth criminal right?
Ultimately, this Florida man’s bid for financial freedom landed him in federal custody. Paying the rent can be a real hustle, and let’s face it, we’ve all been there. But there’s the golden rule. Robbing banks should never make it onto your list of brilliant ideas. Age? Doesn’t matter. Wisdom doesn’t come with wrinkles when it comes to crossing the line. So, put down that plastic bag and pick up some legit ways to hustle for that rent money.
