Missouri man, Michael Conley Loyd, plead guilty to robbing a Bank of America branch in Springfield. Loyd robbed the bank by writing a demand note on the back of his birth certificate, while wearing an ankle monitor for a prior offense.
And yes, that's him in the cover photo.
Loyd's demand note read:
"Give Your Money Now. Don't Say Anything. I Have A Partner Outside."
Then he ran out of the bank with a whopping $754.
He made his getaway in his roommate's truck, but when he saw police responding to the bank robbery, he says that he got scared and threw the money, his birth certificate, and his driver's license out the window. He then texted his roommate and told her that her truck had been stolen.
Tell me that this guy didn't want to get caught in the worst way.
Loyd said he robbed the bank to prove a point to his feuding lover. He didn't say what the point was, but if I had to make a guess, it was something along the lines of "I'd go to prison for you."
If Loyd is given the maximum sentence, he could spend 20 years in prison and receive a fine of $250,000.
If he ever does get out, he might try flowers and chocolate next time: Just a thought.
