The Miami Springs Washington Mutual Bank located at 4475 NW 36 Street was robbed by a Senior Citizen. The elderly man, described to be in his 60s, got away with over $7,000 cash and is currently on the loose.
The man calmly entered the bank on Saturday, August 11th and asked for $15,000. He was holding a cardboard box and claimed to have a bomb inside. He also claimed to have remote assistance outside.
As he bluffed his claims of having a bomb, which proved to be false, tellers also bluffed claiming they didn’t have $15,000 they could give at one time. Eventually, the elderly man left with over $7,000. No one was hurt during the incident.
