Lack of bag foils bank robbery

A bank robbery in Okeechobee County went awry because the would-be robber didn't bring a bag for the loot, TCPalm reports.

A man authorities identified as Joseph Alan Price, 61, handed the PNC Bank teller a note demanding cash and telling her to put the money in a bag.

After the teller repeatedly told the would-be robber that she didn't have a bag, he left the bank and rode away on a bicycle. Deputies arrested Price about seven minutes after the holdup attempt.
