Cops: SC robber says 'thank you,' gets no money

Sep 15, 2010 3:56:00 PM - thestate.com
Authorities say a would-be South Carolina bank robber left with a polite "thank you" after a teller told him she didn't have any money in her cash drawer.

North Charleston police told multiple media outlets that 31-year-old Melvin Jesse Blain walked into a Wachovia branch Tuesday afternoon with a note saying he was robbing the bank and asking for $30,000.

Investigators say the teller told Blain she had no money and he walked out empty-handed, saying "thank you."

Not long after, officers stopped Blain walking near the bank. Police say he told them he just finished a nearly four-year prison sentence for bank robbery and didn't want to go back.

Blain is charged with entering a bank with the intent to steal. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.
