Father gives daughter a lift to ‘job interview’ then realised she had in fact robbed a bank

Florida man says he thought she had been given a cash advance when she returned with large sum of money in cash

The unnamed man said he had assumed that his daughter, Chelsea Wilson, had had a successful interview and got the job at the bank in Fort Lauderdale.  When she returned to his vehicle with a large amount of cash, he thought that she had been given a cash advance.

According to the criminal complaint, Wilson had walked into the branch wearing a red wig, sunglasses and a hat and handed a note to the bank clerk which said: “You have exactly one minute to give me all your $50 and $100 bills from both drawers or I will shoot you! No dye packs, no alarms follow these instructions and no one will get hurt, act normal.”

CCTV footage allegedly shows Wilson running through the car park with the $300 (£246) she managed to steal before getting into her father’s black SUV.

The robbery was noted by the authorities as being similar to three previous incidents in the area and upon investigation they found that Wilson had carried these out as well as four other heists. The report states that she said she used the money to buy groceries.
