SWEET CHRISTMAS: Bank robber throws money on the street, yells ‘Merry Christmas’

A bizarre festive robbery took place in Colorado Springs, and the accused mugger went out of the way in making the headlines.

Colorado Springs police arrested an alleged bank robber who threw the money into the streets, wishing others a merry Christmas in downtown Monday.

A bank near East Pikes Peak Avenue and South Tejon Street was robbed about 12:30 p.m., according to police. The robber, later identified as David Wayne Oliver, allegedly threatened the teller with a weapon and left with an unknown amount of cash, police said.

According to police, the robber walked into the Academy Bank on 1 S. Tejon St. just before 12:30 p.m. Monday, claimed to have a weapon in his pocket, and took cash.

Police have not confirmed what happened next, but according to Pascale, the crook tried to put a holiday spin on his crime.

“He started throwing money out of the bag and then said, ‘Merry Christmas!'”

Bystanders scooped the money up and gave it back to the teller, Pascale said.

Pascale said the suspect sauntered down to the Starbucks next door and “sat down and waited for the cops. It was almost like he wanted it to happen [an arrest].”

Police confirmed they took a suspect into custody for the robbery.

Mind not Wayne, have a Very Merry Christmas!!!
