BOCA RATON, Fla. – A 73-year-old man wearing a “Make America Great Again” shirt told a bank teller he was robbing that he gave him too much money, deputies said.
Sandy Hawkins was arrested Tuesday on a robbery charge.
According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office probable cause affidavit, Hawkins entered a Wells Fargo branch on Sandalfoot Plaza Drive near Boca Raton shortly after 11:30 a.m. Monday, approached a teller and requested $1,100.
“This is a robbery,” Hawkins told the teller. “I have a weapon.”
Hawkins, who was wearing a T-shirt with the words “Trump” and “Make America Great Again” — the campaign slogan used by President Donald Trump — on the front, put his hand in his waistband, implying he had a gun, the affidavit said.
