A robber walked into a bank with a machete and without disguise, slammed his hand on the counter and demanded money. He then dared employees to call the cops. With loot in hand, he walked outside with arms upward in celebration.
Deputies soon caught up with the so-called arrogant suspect after the Monday morning robbery in Manatee County in Southwest Florida.
According to the Bradenton Herald, Brenan Cole Fountain, 31, was taken into custody 11 blocks from the Bank of America branch on Cortez Road.
For Bradenton's Lenbert Bailey, 40, a customer in the bank during the robbery, the unsettling experience was like being in a movie.
"He was just wearing a baseball cap and a white T-shirt and kept saying, 'Go ahead, call the police, call them, Bailey said.
"He walked out of the bank slowly and didn't really seem to care."
