Senior living must have been too dull for one elderly Philadelphia woman who decided to turn to criminal activity at age 86 and rob a bank at gunpoint.

University of Pennsylvania police were alerted to a robbery at the TD Bank at 3735 Walnut St. Tuesday after a woman came and demanded $400 dollars. Police say Emily Coakley has been identified as the robber who even brandished a gun during the brazen act. Coakley has been charged with aggravated assault, robbery and other charges stemming from the bank robbery.

Images were taken of Coakley after her arrest show her being escorted by officers from the bank and using a walker. Bank robbery charges usually carry a sentence of up to ten years with the exception of some nonviolent, mitigating circumstances.

Think deeper…. A jail for senior citizens is much better than any Nursing home or trying to live off Social Security. I actually expect to see more of this in the future from those that have had a hand out all their lives.
