After receiving the note, the teller could not decipher what Love had written, and handed it back to him, and asked that he rewrite it so that it could be re-read,” said a news release from the Delaware State Police. Love, either panicked or frustrated, took back his note and left the bank with no money. After he fled, the tellers conferred and determined that it had been a robbery attempt. They called the police and a description of the suspect was given to state troopers and New Castle county police. A police officer located Love and arrested him for attempted robbery. Love was unarmed and no one was injured during the incident.
The situation mirrors a comedic sequence in the Woody Allen movie “Take the Money and Run” where Allen’s character attempts to rob a bank but the teller cannot read his demand note and argues with Allen over the line, “I’m pointing a gun at you.” “That looks like ‘gub.’ It doesn’t look like ‘gun,’” the teller says. Eventually a group of tellers confer, bickering over Allen’s heist note. He is eventually arrested and taken to jail.
