Cops: Boston Man Wrote Name on Bank Robbery Note


By Kelli Sutterman

BOSTON, Massachusetts (AP) — A Boston man is being held on attempted bank robbery charges after police said he passed a teller a note with his name on it and demanded cash.

Police said 54-year-old Brian Miller, who was arrested Thursday, passed a note to a Meetinghouse Bank teller that read, "I am Brian need $4,000 I got a gun and a Bomb."

The teller without reading the notes hit the panic button and walked away and informed her manager. The teller then returned to the window and read the note.

Police said officers arrived on the scene and found Miller standing in front of the teller just as she finished reading.

Miller was charged with attempted bank robbery and stealing by confining or putting in fear.

It was unclear if he had hired an attorney.
