Man Robs Bank After Foreclosure

A masked gunman held up an Athens, Ga., bank on Thursday, saying that he was only getting his money back after the lender had foreclosed on his home.

The man entered Regions Bank wearing a black ski mask and pointed a handgun at a teller and said, “You took my house, now I’m going to take your money,” according to Athens-Clarke police.

The man fled carrying the money in a bag. The bank plans to review foreclosure records to try to identify the man.

  1. “good for him” ?!?! Wow, you are a frickin idiot. The guy quits making his mortgage payment so the bank tries to recover their losses by taking back the collateral- as stated in the contract this guy signed. Yay, you’re right… that bank is horrible.

    You are a perfect example of everything that is wrong with our economy.
