Man robs banks with avocado – flees with $12,000
A man will sit trial after being accused of robbing two banks with an avocado.
The 47-year-old has been arrested after allegedly robbing two banks in Beershaba, Israel using a whole avocado, according to the Times of Israel.
The man entered a Postal Bank branch at a shopping mall in May and handed over a note demanding she hand over cash.
“Hand over the money in the drawer,” the note read according to 112 News.
When the cashier hesitated, the robber spoke, saying: “Put the money in the bag quickly or I’ll throw this grenade.”
The “grenade” however turned out to be a piece of fruit he painted black.
The performance happened once more at another bank a few days later.
The accused will stand trial for stealing more than AUD$12,000 in total.
Police were able to track the robber down using his mobile device.
