(CBS/AP) PORT RICHEY, Fla. – Police say a Tampa Bay area man ordered a beer at a bar, left to rob a bank nearby, and then came back to finish his beer.
Fifty-two-year-old John Robin Whittle was arrested at the Hayloft Bar on Thursday afternoon, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies say he’s the man who robbed a Wells-Fargo bank branch earlier after he had stopped at the bar for a refreshment.
A bartender at the establishment said Whittle ordered a beer, disappeared for about 30 minutes and then returned to his beer. Police say they arrested him at the bear about 10 minutes after he left the crime scene at the bank.
Whittle remains in jail on a $10,000 bond.
For some reason, this guys face is the exact picture that popped in to my head when I came across this story, and bang, there it is. He’s the dude that you’re crazy divorced Aunt brings to a family party to make it look like she has a boyfriend, the type that looks clean at first but once you get him a drink he turns in to Jack Nicholson in The Shining and goes ape shit on your grandma.
Honestly though, is there not a more swag way of goin’ out? You start drinking, decide to a bank and immediately have to go back and finish off the warm Labbatt Blue with Trudy the 60 year old stripper. Gotta say it, this guy is an absolute warrior, he will always be a thug, and he will spread his white trash ways throughout his county.
Merry Fuckin’ Christmas John Robin Whittle, we’re working on your bail up here in the Upstate man.
