A resident of the American state of Texas named Eric Dion Warren was so eager to buy a new BMW that he decided to rob a bank. To make his plans come true, a 50-year-old man took a model he liked for a test drive and went to “business” right behind the wheel of a test car.
Before the robbery, Eric Dion Warren arrived at a BMW dealership, took a car for a test drive, and went to the bank. Entering the institution, the man began to threaten the cashier with a shotgun, demanding to give him $ 10,000 in denominations of $ 100 and $ 50. The robber presented his demand on a note. Having received what he wanted, the Texan went back to the car dealership, where he hoped to deposit the stolen funds as a first installment for BMW.
However, the uncomplicated plan turned out to be a failure. The bank employee managed to put 20-dollar bills in the robber’s bag. Eric Dion Warren was in such a hurry to complete the deal at the dealership that he forgot a note with his prints at the crime scene. In addition, the man for some reason did not take into account that the BMW he was driving would be seen at the crime scene.
The police detained the criminal right in the car dealership. Eric Dion Warren, 50, was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Last week, the US police caught a gang of kidnappers of catalytic converters. The attackers have been operating in California for over a year, and during this time at least 250 cars have lost their expensive parts.
