Bank Robber Calls 911

A man robbed a Michigan bank and got away -- but didn't stay away.

WOOD-TV reports that a 40-year-old Comstock Park resident later called 911 and confessed.

According to the Kent County sheriff's department, the man simply said: "I'm the one that robbed the bank, and I wanted to turn myself in."

Officials at the sheriff's office tell WWMT-TV that an armed man walked into a Chase bank in the Grand Rapids area Wednesday morning and demanded money, before getting away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The 911 call came more than an hour later.

The sheriff's department is working with the FBI on the case.

    What? It sounds to me like he did the right thing. He should still face the consequences, but he knows he did wrong, probably wouldn't do it again, and that should be taken into consideration. Still should serve time, of course, but he's already ahead of the game as far as rehabilitation, the purpose of which is to learn from one's mistakes and not make them in the future. Assuming you believe in rehabilitation in the first place.

    He had a guilty concience and knew he was going to get caught. They need to find out what he did with the money because he probably stashed it for when he gets out of prison.
