Moment pensioner, 69, tried to rob three banks by passing a threatening note under the counter warning staff, ‘I’m not f****ing about’ before demanding cash – as he is jailed for two years
- Andy Slattery, 69, was sentenced for just over two-and-a-half years last month
This is the moment a pensioner tried to rob three banks by shoving a threatening note under the counter which ordered staff to hand over wads of cash so ‘no one will get hurt’.
‘Shameless’ Andy Slattery, 69, walked into two different National Building Society bank branches in Bexhill and St Leonards, East Sussex, demanding employees to hand over £10 and £20 notes.
The handwritten note, which was also pushed through to staff at a NatWest Bank in Bexhill, read: ‘I am not f*****g about, just pass me the 10’s and 20’s now and no one will get hurt.’
While Slattery’s demands were shut down by staff on each occasion leaving him empty-handed, he was jailed for just over two-and-a-half years after admitting three counts of attempted robbery.
CCTV footage released last week showed him strolling into the banks on February 10 and slipping a piece of paper across the counter and under the Perspex barrier.
