Good idea: Ditching the money as quickly as possible after robbing a bank.
Not so hot: Ditching the money by running outside and depositing it into your own account via the ATM attached to the building.
State police arrested McRoberts Williams Saturday after they say he robbed the Wells Fargo on Old Capitol Trail at the Prices Corner Shopping Center in Wilmington.
The 44-year-old California man handed a teller a note saying he was robbing the bank around 11:20 a.m., police said. The 25-year-old woman then handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and Williams left the bank.
“The suspect fled the bank on foot, and once outside he made a deposit in the atm on the exterior of the building,” state police said.
The man then ran behind the shopping center on foot where state troopers caught up to him and arrested him, police said.
