A 70-year-old man admitted to investigators after he carried out a bank robbery in Kansas that he would prefer prison to stay with his wife.
Lawrence Ripple pleaded guilty to a bank robbery in Kansas City and now faces up to 20 years in prison.
Court documents show that Ripple demanded a bank employee in Kansas City for a date of handing over the money, threatening him that he was carrying a weapon.
Ripple seized nearly $ 3,000 and then sat in the lobby of the bank on Minnesota Street 756, then spoke to a guard and told him, “You are the man I was looking for,” according to the police report.
According to an FBI agent, Lawrence Ripple had quarreled with his wife earlier and told her in a written letter that he “would prefer prison to stay at home.”
His wife, Indaion, had accompanied him to court, where the couple refused to comment on the incident after the court released the man in exchange for bail.
