Here’s something you don’t hear every day…
On September 2, 2016, 70-year-old Lawrence Ripple robbed a Kansas City bank, but it wasn’t because he wanted money.
Ripple was tired of living with his wife.
Court documents show that Ripple gave a Bank of Labor teller a note demanding cash and warning he had a gun. After he grabbed nearly $3,000, Ripple didn’t flee: He sat in the lobby and told a guard he was the “guy he was looking for.”
An FBI agent says Ripple had argued with his wife earlier and told her in writing he’d “rather be in jail than at home.”
He pleaded guilty Monday in Kansas City, Kansas, to a federal bank robbery count. He faces up to 20 years in prison.
Looks like his wish will be granted. A sentencing date will be scheduled soon.
