If you ever rob a bank, and it goes without saying you shouldn't, it is probably not a good idea to apply for a job at the police station afterward.
That is the lesson a bank robber in Arizona learned the hard way.
Cottonwood Police say 32-year-old Alberto Saavedra Lopez was a suspect in a bank robbery back in 2016. Lopez is suspected of stealing $5,000 from the Bank of America he used to work at.
Shortly after quitting his job, Lopez moved two hours south to Phoenix but little did he know a warrant was issued for his arrest.
In December 2017, Lopez applied to work for the same police station that had been looking for him for over a year. The police must have been thrilled when in walked Lopez applying for a dispatch position with Cottonwood Police.
Authorities scheduled an interview with Lopez and acted like they were considering him for the position. In walks Lopez for his interview, police arrest him on the spot for felony theft and told him he was no longer being considered for employment.
Big surprise. I only wish I could have seen the look on his face when they broke out the silver bracelets and told him he was under arrest.
