A man who allegedly robbed a Colorado bank and then threw the stolen cash into the air while shouting, ‘Merry Christmas’ to passersby has been arrested.
David Wayne Oliver, 65, was found by cops while sitting at a nearby Starbucks coffee shop after he allegedly held up the Academy Bank in Colorado Springs on Monday, December 23, 2019, in the afternoon.
Police said he had ‘threatened the use of a weapon’ and left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.
A police spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment, but Colorado Springs television station KKTV reported that eyewitness Dion Pascale recounted Oliver stepped outside the bank and tossed the money ‘all over the place.’
‘He started throwing money out of the bag’ before yelling, ‘Merry Christmas,’ the TV station quoted Pascale as saying.
