Man Robs Bank, Gives Away Money on Bus

He’s kind of like Robin Hood—if Robin Hood were a homeless man from Florida and rode a bus instead of a horse. The St. Petersburg Times says after a homeless man robbed a bank and left with an undisclosed amount of money, he hopped on a bus and started handed out his booty to strangers. He did keep some for himself, say authorities, sticking his cut in his pants. He was caught after the bus driver staged a mechanical problem and pulled the bus over. Police said they were able to recover “some money back from the remaining passengers.”
