The key to a successful robbery is in the details, and 38-year-old Randy Walker and 35-year-old Jason Bietrich, (both arrested on robbery charges this week in Daytona Beach, FL) would probably agree. Maybe right now, they are sitting in lockup going over their checklist before attempting the crime, and it might look something like this:
-Enter bank: Check
-Demand cash: Check
-Don't hurt anybody: Check
-Speed away in getaway car: Check.
-Make sure getaway car has plenty of gas: Oops.
Police found the abandoned Jeep of the wannabe bandits less than a mile away from the scene, with no fuel in the tank. They two men were arrested when they came back for the vehicle. Perhaps the story is best summed up by Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood who can be heard in this video saying: "Thank God for stupid, scumbag criminals or we'd all be out of work."
You and me both, Chief.
In hindsight, maybe they should have just robbed a gas station?
