Man Reports Fake Robbery to Help Commit Real One

A man in California is alleged to have reported a fake robbery in a nearby town before walking into another bank and robbing it himself.

According to Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, the man that they are looking for is African-American and aged in his 20s.

Witnesses who saw the suspect at a supermarket claim that he spoke to someone in the store about finding an open Bank of America Branch, after finding the one in the supermarket closed.

After being told of an open branch at Dana Point (three miles from the supermarket) he is said to have gone to an AT&T store, where he used a display phone to dial 911 and report a bogus robbery in Laguna Niguel. The suspect was next seen walking into the Dana Point bank, where he told a bank teller that he had a gun and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
