There was a homeless man in Shreveport that robbed a bank. He went in with his hand under his jacket and told the teller it was a robbery. She handed him 3 stacks of bills, he then took 1 - $100 bill, returned the stacks and left. The next day, he went back to the bank to return the $100 and told them that he was giving back the money because "he wasn't raised that way." He explained that he needed the money to stay in a detox center and he had no food or place to stay. They subsequently arrested him, he had a trial and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
