Notary accidentally gets arrested for robbing a bank?

How can you “accidentally” get arrested for robbing a bank? You either robbed a bank or you didn’t. It should be painfully obvious, right?

It had been a long night and she was out of cash. This notary had just finished a signing for the Ramblers. These borrowers never got to the point and the conversations when on and on. Finally, the signing was over, and the notary left. It was raining hard and the roof to the notary’s jeep had a rip in it. But, she got a flat tire.

So, she made her way to a tire shop via tow truck 15 minutes before closing. They said she would have to leave the car with them. She asked if they had a wrench so she could do the work herself. The staff really wanted to go home. But, one guy wanted to help. So, he got a new tire on her jeep, and the bill was $200. But, she had no credit cards on her and her cash supply was low. This notary volunteered to have them take her to a bank. So, the tow truck drove her car to a local bank with an ATM machine and parked in the parking lot. She went to the ATM, and got some money and then…

FREEZE — put your hands in the air. You have the right to remain silent. Everything you say can and will be held against you in a court of law. Face the car and put your hands on your head.

The lady said, “Okay”

The vibrations from the tow truck had set off the bank’s alarm and the police made it there within less than a minute. They figured out what had happened and let the notary go. What a crazy night!

The moral of the story is — NEVER go to a bank in a tow truck unless you park far away and turn the motor off.

(1) The stranded notary arrived at the ATM w/a tow truck which set off the bank alarm!
(2) The notary finished the signing & then made it to the tire shop to fix a flat.
