Would Be Robbers Phoned Ahead, Shall We Say IDIOTS!!

Police in Connecticut said a pair of would-be bank robbers did them a favor by phoning ahead and announcing their intentions.

Fairfield police said Albert Bailey, 27, and a 16-year-old who was not named due to his age called People's United Bank Tuesday and told employees to be ready with money because they were coming to rob the facility and were prepared to create a "blood bath," the Bridgeport Connecticut Post reported Wednesday.

The pair showed up unarmed at the bank about 10 minutes after placing the call, police said.

"You can't make this stuff up," Fairfield police spokesman Sgt. James Perez said. "They literally called the bank and said to have the bag of money ready on the floor because they're coming to rob the place. And then they actually show up as the police were rolling in. I would classify these individuals as, 'Not-too-bright.' They should have spent time in school instead of trying to rob a bank."

Bailey, who was on probation for robbing a People's Bank branch in Bridgeport in 2003, and the 16-year-old were both charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree threatening.
