Florida Man Googles ‘How To Rob A Bank,’ Later Arrested For Bank Robbery

A Florida man who police say googled “how to rob a bank” is now behind bars for committing a bank robbery.

Authorities say 26-year-old William Johnson approached the teller, said he had a gun and demanded money. Johnson then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash on foot.

Authorities later found Johnson at an Express Inn where he was taken into custody.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office says Johnson admitted to googling “how to rob a bank” because he was in need of money.

The suspect also admitted that he planned to rob a different bank but changed his mind when he saw the teller was a large male.

Detectives say Johnson used the stolen money to pay for rent, utilities and a drug binge.

  2. I can totally get why he googled that. I’m sure that’s what I would do if I was about to rob a bank. I might even take my Google Home with me to complete the job. Does that mean it would be arrested as an accomplice?

    Probably should have used duckduckgo or dogpile. They animals would not have ratted him out.
