A man robbed a bank by handing over a note to the teller informing her “this is a robbery.” He left the bank with the money but didn’t know his complete address and personal info was on the back of the note.
A man walked in the 7900 block of Euclid Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio around 11:10 a.m and handed the teller a note.
The note she received stated that it was a robbery, she complied and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash.
The man was immediately identified as Michael Harrell.
Harrell didn’t notice that the note he handed to the teller had his complete address and his full name on the back of the card.
The note may as well have been a business card.
Special Agent Vicki Anderson, of the Cleveland Office of the FBI, told Fox 8:
“When the teller took the note, and looked at it and looked at the other side, she saw his name. He had used a note that he had used earlier at the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles and it had his name on it. She actually even referred to him as Michael. [The teller] gave him the money and called him Michael and then notified law enforcement.”
Michael, afraid to head back home is now on the run.
Police are asking the public for help to locate Harrell. He’s a 5-foot-7 black male with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, baseball cap, long camouflage shorts, and dark sneakers.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers or the Cleveland FBI.
