A wig-wearing man broke into a suburban Chicago bank vault and nearly made off with $100,000 but got stuck in an air duct and had to be cut out hours later, authorities said Sunday.
Charles Estell, 38, was found early Sunday hiding in an air duct in an office next to the bank, according to Oak Lawn police spokesman Michael Kaufmann.
The Chicago man had allegedly robbed the suburban bank Saturday afternoon, and pointed a gun at bank employees who confronted him in the vault, according to the FBI.
Perhaps I shouldn’t be so hard on this guy – he almost scored $100,000. That’s pretty impressive until the whole getting stuck in the air duct part. I really hope this isn’t the level of sh#t I’m going to be posting this week. It’s still pretty funny though.
