Man arrested for attempted bank robbery in Omaha will have first court appearance
OMAHA, Neb. -- A man accused of attempted bank robbery last Friday will appear before a Douglas County judge Wednesday.
Police initially arrested 38-year-old Jonathon Krula for attempted bank robbery but the arrest affidavit indicates it went further than that.
Authorities said Krula walked into an Omaha Pinnacle Bank and handed a note that said, "I'm a bomb, pay me." Then instructed employees not to give him trackers or dye packs.
He then sat down in a chair and waited for employees to hand over several bags of money, which they did -- but then police said he threw it on the floor, walked out, and drove away.
Police say Krula left his wallet at the scene, which made him easier to track down.
