If you’re going to rob a bank, it might be a good idea to have a realistic getaway plan, and a route of egress that doesn’t put you staring down the barrel of a gun:
Two hunters assisted in the arrest of a Richmond man following a bank robbery in Cumberland County on Friday.
Jamieyian J. Liggon, 28, and Jaquan L. Robinson, 31, both of Richmond, are being held without bond at Piedmont Regional Jail in Farmville.
Virginia State Police were called to Central Virginia/C&F Bank in Cartersville at 9:17 a.m. Friday after two men had entered the bank and, at gunpoint, demanded money and keys to a bank employee’s car.
When the employee’s car didn’t start, one man ran through a nearby field and the other fled into nearby woods, police said.
Two hunters spotted Liggon, detained him without incident and turned him over to police back at the bank. Police recovered the handgun and stolen money.
It must have been humiliating when the hunters marched him back to the bank to be arrested.
