Texas bank robber asked for ID

Sure, here's my Wells Fargo debit card

Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

A Texas master criminal's attempt to rob a Dallas bank ended badly after the teller requested two forms of ID before handing over cash.

Nathan Wayne Pugh, 49, was on parole for two previous aggravated robberies when he marched into a branch of Wells Fargo to make an illegal withdrawal.

Confronted by the teller's demand for identification, he obligingly whipped out his Wells Fargo debit card and a Texas state ID "bearing his name", as local KWTX explains.

Pugh was cuffed as he tried to make good his escape with 800 bucks, and was earlier this week sentenced to eight years for the heist. The sentence will run consecutively with the 25 years he picked up for his earlier unsuccessful fundraising bids. ®
