Would-be bank robber in Fall River changes mind and rips up note, police say

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — Police in Massachusetts are looking for a woman they say intended to rob a bank but got cold feet and left without a penny.

Fall River police tell the Herald News that the woman walked into the Fall River Municipal Credit Union on Monday afternoon and approached a teller.

Police say the woman hesitated, told the teller ‘‘give me a minute,’’ and went to a counter and wrote on a piece of paper.

But she ripped up the note, dropped the pieces in the trash and walked out.

Bank employees pieced the note together and it said: ‘‘Give me the money.’’


Anyone who recognizes the woman in surveillance images is asked to contact Fall River police.
