There is an old saying about “coming back to the scene of the crime,” but this criminal took it way too literally.

A Philadelphia man is accused of robbing an Atlantic City, N.J., bank in April—just four months after he was released from a prison term for robbing the same bank in 2010.

According to a July 1, 2015, AP story, the 55-year-old man told a teller at Cape Bank he had a gun and escaped with “an undisclosed amount of cash.” However, as he “was fleeing on foot, a bank employee approached a police officer on traffic detail and said the bank had been robbed.” The robber immediately was spotted and taken into custody.

The man is due in court this week, and faces “up to 20 years in prison if he's convicted on the bank robbery charge. He also could face two additional years in prison for violating the terms of his supervised release.”
