Bearded man robs bank, gifts money, then yells ‘Merry Christmas’

A white-bearded man robbed a bank two days before Christmas then threw the money in the air and enthusiastically wished passers-by a merry Christmas, witnesses have said.

Police said “an older white male” robbed the Academy Bank in Colorado Springs on Monday lunchtime.

“He robbed the bank, came out, threw the money all over the place,” witness Dion Pascale told Colorado’s 11 News.
