Ann Arbor's dumbest criminals

A man walked into the TCF Bank at 125 Briarwood Circle about 10 this morning and demanded money, Ann Arbor police Sgt. Pat Hughes said. A teller gave him an undisclosed amount of money, and he left the bank on foot, Hughes said. Reports indicated the man got on an AATA bus headed for Ypsilanti, Hughes said.
The suspect, a 30-year-old man from Ypsilanti, got off the bus in the area of Hawkins and Franklin Streets and was arrested by Ypsilanti Police Department officers, Hughes said. The money the man had taken from the bank was recovered at the scene, Hughes said.
Full story here. How does one get past thinking "and then I'll make my getaway on the bus" without breaking into gales of laughter and giving up on the whole idea?

Hat tip: Charlie Brown, who noted that perhaps he should have stolen a bike first.
