Robbery suspect signed his name to withdrawal slip before robbing bank
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The man accused of robbing the Bank of Hawaii on Kalakaua Avenue last week has been taken into custody, but police say he didn't do much to hide his identity.
According to federal court documents, 45-year-old Albert Robledo signed his name on a bank withdrawal slip and filled in $5,000 as the withdrawal amount.
Robledo then wrote, "put the money in bag or bomb," on the withdrawal slip and handed it to the bank teller.
He then tried to give the teller a debit card that also had Robledo's name on it.
According to the criminal complaint, he waved a knife and ran off with $2,000.
A Honolulu police officer spotted Robledo changing clothes on Kapahulu Avenue and detained him.
Police shut down the area for three areas until it was confirmed that Robledo did not have a bomb. Authorities found his knife and clothes he wore during the holdup once the all-clear was given.
