Bloke drove dealership car to rob bank, tried to use loot to buy BMW
Mate, one of the things you’ve gotta love – even if it’s completely immoral and it all goes pear-shaped – is the desire of the human spirit to be a cheeky c**t. Yeah, nah, don’t get us wrong, doing criminal s**t sucks a fat one, but there’s certainly a little bit of us that respects the idea here. After all, if old mate had pulled it off, they’d be making movies about it for years to come. Anyway, let’s check it out. It’s a pretty good little story…
Before we go on, though, we’d better introduce you to Eric Dion Warren. He’s the bloke he tried to pull off the cheeky stunt. He failed and he’s now going to prison for twenty years, which, if we’re honest, is more than deserved.

It all happened back in the summer of 2019 before the apocalypse got its claws into us, the pandemic hit, and the fires raged. Yeah, nah, they were simpler times. Back to the point, though, Warren, who was fifty at the time, took a test drive in a Texas car dealership vehicle.
He then drove to the bank, walked in and approached the teller. He dropped a fast-food bag and a note in front of them. The note read:
“This is a f—— robbery. Play with me and d*e. I want $10,000 in 50 and 100 dollar bills now you got 1 minute or I will k*ll you.” Once the teller was done reading that terrifying piece of literature, Warren pulled out a ‘handgun’ and said, “I ain’t playing around. I only want 100s and 50s.”
Everyone sleeps on Texas man. A lot of strong contenders. 😂

Fifteen minutes later, he was back at the car-yard, trying to buy a BMW. To cut the long story short, the dealer called the police, aware that they were looking for Warren’s getaway vehicle.
Once the cops grabbed him, they found that Warren had about $5000 and a pellet gun painted to look like a real handgun on his body.
The real crime is the dealership was going to charge extra for mats

And that’s why he’s going to prison.
Final thought: As we said, there’s definitely a part of us that respects the idea. What do you reckon, though, is twenty years a just amount of time? He did threaten lives and people didn’t know the gun wasn’t real, but also, it seems a bit harsh. Let us know your thoughts…
