Intoxicated Tallahassee bank robbery suspect arrived by taxi
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say an intoxicated man attempted to rob a Tallahassee bank after arriving in a taxi.
Police say 47-year-old Stanley Geddie demanded $100,000 from a bank manager Wednesday afternoon at the Capital City Bank, claiming he had a .357 handgun and C4 plastic explosives.
When officers first arrived at the bank, the cab driver told them Geddie had not paid his $25.50 fare. Officers then found Geddie in the bank manager’s office, appearing “very intoxicated and spaced out.” They say Geddie wouldn’t follow their commands, prompting them to stun him with a Taser. No gun or explosives were found.
The Tallahassee Democrat (http://goo.gl/zOIUBG ) reports that Geddie was arrested and charged with robbery, petty theft and resisting an officer. He was also being held on two probation violations. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
