54 year old David Wayne Oliver was arrested at a coffee shop after robbing a bank in Colorado, USA. According to the police, the suspect had “threatened the use of a weapon” and left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash. A police spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment, but Colorado Springs television station KKTV reported that eyewitness Dion Pascale recounted Oliver stepped outside the bank and tossed the money “all over the place.”
“He started throwing money out of the bag” before yelling, “Merry Christmas,” the TV station quoted Pascale as saying. Pascale said by standers retrieved some of the money and returned it to the bank as Oliver walked to the coffee shop, sat down and appeared to be waiting for police to arrest him, KKTV reported.
The Denver Post quoted police as saying “thousands of dollars” remained unaccounted for, adding there was no indication Oliver used a weapon in the heist. Oliver, pictured in police mug shots with gray-and-white hair and a full white beard, is being held at the El Paso County jail and is set to make his first court appearance on Thursday, jail records showed. It was not clear from the records if he has an attorney.
