Florida Man wearing political shirt robs bank, gives some money back saying they gave him too much.

Not that it matters at all. But the shirt in question Had “Make America Great Again” on it. Obviously the way this guy plans on doing that is by dying in prison.  Great job buddy, you just committed a Federal offense for no reason at all.

BOCA RATON, Fla. – A 73-year-old man named Sandy Hawkins walked into the bank with this brilliant idea.

According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office probable cause affidavit, Hawkins entered a Wells Fargo branch on Sandalfoot Plaza Drive near Boca Raton shortly after 11:30 a.m. Monday, approached a teller and requested $1,100. (No one knows what the significance of that amount means to him but, it seemed important).

“This is a robbery,” Hawkins told the teller. “I have a weapon.” You know, like in the old movies and stuff. That always works.

Hawkins, who was wearing a T-shirt with the words “Trump” and “Make America Great Again” — the campaign slogan used by President Donald Trump — on the front, put his hand in his waistband, implying he had a gun, the affidavit said.

The teller began counting aloud as he laid out $2,000.

“Hawkins told him it was too much and again demanded $1,100,” the affidavit said.

After the teller slid $1,100 under the window, Hawkins took the money and walked out, deputies said.

A manager at a nearby bar (Where else would a Florida bank manager be after an armed robbery?) later identified the robber from surveillance photographs as Hawkins.

When deputies went to his home, Hawkins was sitting outside on an electrical box and provided a full confession.

“I will make this easy,” Hawkins told detectives during an interview.

Detectives said Hawkins removed a tattered bank deposit slip from his pocket with a handwritten note that read, “Give me $1,100. Now, No Alarms, Hope to get caught.”

Hawkins was booked into the main Palm Beach County jail, where he was being held in lieu of a $50,000 bond.
