This criminal’s reason for robbing a Wisconsin-based bank is simply hilarious!
According to official reports, Jesse Sweeter, a Wisconsin ex-convict, was caught with a bag of cash and what appeared to be a handgun shortly after the Sterling Bank in Rice Lake, Wisconsin, was robbed. The reports don’t say how much Sweeter took from the bank exactly, but he reportedly gave the local police a highly unusual reason for his actions. The man allegedly had to rob the bank just so he could pay his court fees in order to avoid spending some time in jail. Apart from robbing the Sterling bank, Sweeter is also a suspect in three armed robberies that took place in Eau Claire stores in Wisconsin.
The police arrested Kyle Langner, 22, and Ricky White, 25, as suspects in the three robberies. The reports state that Sweeter might not know the other two men, but that all three of them will get charges for armed robbery. Fortunately, nobody got hurt in either of the robberies.
