UNC Fan Robbed A Bank The Day Before The ACC Championship


I like to believe that this guy is a die hard Tar Heel fan and only robbed this bank so he had a boat load of cash to bet on UNC today. That, or he took the Heels 12-1 in the preseason to win the ACC and is just hedging his bet today by laying Clemson.

That’s the only explanation for robbing a bank the day before your team plays their biggest game in a decade.

From WRAL: 

Fayetteville police are searching for a man responsible for a Friday afternoon bank robbery.

Police said that the man entered the First Citizens Bank at 3604 Ramsey St. at about 12:30 p.m. and handed the teller a note that demanded money and stated that he had a weapon.
The man obtained an undetermined amount of money before fleeing on foot.
The man was described as being about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a gray beard. He is believed to be in his late 50s to early 60s. The man was wearing a black University of North Carolina hat, a blue zip-up hooded
sweatshirt, a black shirt with the letter “C” on it, blue jeans and black-and-white shoes.

Maybe he was just so nervous about the game that he just had to take his mind off it by getting a little adrenaline rush and robbing a bank.

I just hope the police let him at least watch the game tonight before they catch him and throw him in the clink. I think UNC actually has a real chance to win and if some things go their way, they might actually make the playoff. It’s too bad this guy probably won’t be able to watch if it happens.
