FBI: Robber showed ID to teller
Authorities in Alaska said a bank robber showed his ID and gave his name and bank account number to a teller before the crime.
The FBI said Jarell Paul Arnold, 34, walked into the Alaska USA Federal Credit Union in Anchorage about 1:05 p.m. Friday and made an inquiry about the balance of his account, showing his ID and giving his name and account number. Then he gave the teller a note demanding money and saying he had a gun concealed, the Anchorage Daily News reported Thursday.
Agents said Arnold, who was taken to the Anchorage Jail, admitted to robbing the bank but said he did not have a gun at the time.
