Gilbert Paul Ware, 86, entered a bank in Greenville, South Carolina, showed a gun, and demanded money. According to a warrant, he also fired the weapon. Employees complied, and Ware fled the scene with cash.
But he didn’t get far.
According to police, Ware was easily apprehended within minutes about a mile away, with both the cash and the weapon. He was caught because he was driving very cautiously.
It’s not clear if Ware was driving slowly because he didn’t want to draw attention or because, at his age, he’s a poor driver. At least he didn’t put up a fight during his arrest.
