An Arizona “bank robber” may not be able to retire despite getting what he wanted.
Eduardo Bulerin lightened a bank to the tune of a single $100 bill but told cops his real reward was getting arrested.
Bulerin breezed into First Bank in the Phoenix suburb of Goodyear on Sept. 15 and passed a note demanding money to a teller, according to court documents obtained by Fox 10.
The teller handed over a mere $100, and within 15 minutes police were on the scene to apprehend the robber.
Yet, far from dismayed, Bulerin told officers the very reason for the crime was to get busted. He explained that, as a former gang member who feared for his life, he had been trying to swing a rendezvous with a set of handcuffs all day to get off the streets.
His wish fulfilled, the unconventional crook was booked into jail on a robbery charge.
