Usually, when you hear of people committing Robbery, you don't normally hear of them waiting to be arrested by police. That was the case for one 70-year-old man, who allegedly robbed a bank because he and his wife had an argument and he “no longer wanted to be in that situation.” After robbing the bank, the man sat in the bank's lobby with the money and told a security guard that he was the guy they were looking for. In Denver, the man would be facing charges of Robbery, C.R.S. 18-4-301.
