Mike’s the Stupid News – Bank Robber Searched Internet for ‘How-to’ Tips Before Robbing Bank
Here’s a tip for any future bank robbers reading this; if you’re going to rob a bank, for gosh sakes don’t Google “If you’re going to rob a bank.”
Massachusetts police said Sarah J. McLoud searched the internet last week to find out “what happens if you rob a bank.”
It didn’t take long for her and her accomplice, 28-year-old Robert W. Owens, to find out.
The pair was arrested Friday on charges of unarmed bank robbery and possession with intent to distribute heroin.
When detectives searched McLoud’s home, they found the cash taken from the bank, the clothing McLoud was spotted in when she committed the crime, and heroin packaged for sale. A check of her computer showed recent searches for “if you’re going to rob a bank,” “what happens if you rob a bank,” “what happens if you rob a house,” and “what happens if you rob a drug dealer.”
