Alan Slattery Biography
Who is Alan Slattery?
A Brit allegedly failed a bank robbery because a handwritten theft slip was so sloppy that the teller couldn’t read it.
This alleged robbery was part of a short-lived rampage in East Sussex by 67-year-old Alan Slattery, which included a second botched robbery and a successful robbery of $ 3,300, Sussex police said in a press release Wednesday.
Slattery was sentenced to four years in prison and two years in Lewes Crown Court on July 16, police said.
The retiree tried to rob the Nationwide Building Society on the morning of March 18 by sliding a piece of paper into the cash register, but came out without cash when the cashier couldn’t see the letter, the statement said.
It was only after they left that the staff noticed the note read, “Your screen of him won’t stop what I think of the customer shortly after 10 and 8 (sic).”
The senseless crime was reminiscent of a scene from the 1969 comedy film “Get the Money and Run,” which shows a bank robbery gone awry when the potential thief argues with tellers, a vice president, and others about whether his bankruptcy slip. heist says: “Gun” Or “Gub”.
But Slattery continued to do so after his first robbery went awry, and on March 26 he sent a note to a Nationwide Building Society cashier who was able to read it, handing out about $ 3,300 in cash, he told police.
Surveillance footage showed Slattery getting on a bus and according to police, he was identified by the bus company based on his passport photo.
Slattery struck one last time before police charged him, this time on April 1 at a NatWest bank, according to the press release. He used a banknote again, but this time the teller rejected Slattery and scared him, who left the bank without taking anything, police said.
Police later arrested Slattery for robbery and attempted robbery near his home, police said. At his home, they found “stickers” that matched one of his burglary notes, the statement said.
“These incidents have created fear and anguish among bank employees and the public,” Detective Jay Fair said in a statement.
“I would like to thank all the victims and witnesses who supported our investigation, and I am pleased that the seriousness of the crimes is reflected in the court’s verdict.”
