At his age, he should just be at home or in a shelter for the elderly enjoying and taking things easy, but an 80-year old man in Tucson, Arizona was arrested by the police for allegedly robbing a credit union at gunpoint.
Surveillance cameras caught 80-year-old Robert Francis Krebs entering the Pyramid Credit Union and a teller’s window. The elderly man had a handgun, and demanded money from the teller and was given cash before running out of the bank. The authorities did not specify how much money was taken by the elderly robber.
The authorities then circulated surveillance photos of Krebs that led to a tip and his eventual arrest. The photos were released after Friday’s robbery. A local hotel clerk called police Saturday to report that a man who looked like the one in the photos they circulated tried to cash a check.
Police then started checking nearby hotels and located Krebs. He was arrested and booked into jail on two counts of armed robbery.
It is still unclear if he has an attorney. It was also not revealed yet what his motive for the robbery, or if in his advanced age, he has previous records of criminal offenses.
