Oct 27 (THAINDIAN NEWS) After robbing a bank which was located in downtown Missoula, Montana, an unnamed man soon realized he had a problem, no get-away car, but he quickly came up with a sensible solution- he called a cab.

According to the Associated Press, the cab driver, James Anderson stated that he noticed the man was acting very strange when he got into the cab at a coffee shop. At first, he wanted to go to the ‘University of Montana’ campus, but would not tell Anderson exactly which part of the campus he wished to go to. Then he changed his mind and wanted to go to a hotel, after a stop by the store for cigarettes.

He told the driver that he would give him a good tip for doing so. The cost of the cab was $7.50 and the alleged robber gave Anderson a $5 tip. As soon as he went to step out of the cab, the police swarmed the cab, guns pointed at the man.

He had allegedly gone into the ‘Sterling Savings Bank’ and demanded money from a teller after saying he was carrying a weapon. No one saw this weapon and no one was hurt in the robbery.
