Wait your turn
Police are looking for a would-be bank robber who was told to wait his turn during an attempted heist in St. Clair Shores on Wednesday.
The 28- to 35-year-old man with short red hair, a moustache and goatee walked into the Flagstar Bank at 9 Mile and Harper at 2:17 p.m., according to a release issued by St. Clair Shores Police.
“He handed a note to the teller stating he had a pistol,” the police report says. “The teller told him she was waiting on drive-through customers and he would have to wait.”Back when I was a banker, I had a teller who would have done this. For the record, it's not because this is a good way to distract a clueless robber. It's because she really didn't want to wait on customers.
