Ind. bank robber steals cash, hands some to teller

Northern Indiana police say a man who robbed a South Bend bank surprised a teller by handing her some of the loot before he fled.

South Bend police say the man in his early 20s told the teller "Here's some of the tens back ... you gave me too many tens" before he ran out of the Fifth Third Bank on Wednesday.

The South Bend Tribune reports the teller told police she "knew something was wrong" when the man entered the bank wearing a sweatshirt on a day when the temperature hovered near 80.

Police say the man said he had a weapon when he handed the teller a note demanding cash. Bank officials have not disclosed the amount taken, but the teller handed him $100, $50 and $10 bills.
