Waikiki bank robber allegedly gave teller his name before making off with money


HONOLULU — Authorities say a man accused of robbing a Waikiki bank revealed his identity to the teller during the heist.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports ( ) 45-year-old Albert Michael Robledo was charged with bank robbery in connection to last week's incident at Bank of Hawaii.

According to an FBI affidavit, a man entered the bank and passed the teller a withdrawal slip. The slip was signed with his name and read: "Put the money in the bag or bomb."

The teller reportedly told authorities the man also gave her a debit card that also had his name on it.

The robber allegedly brandished a knife and demanded $5,000 from the woman.

Robledo was arrested shortly after the incident.

Police had closed off a street for hours while they searched his bag for explosives.
