US man takes Uber to rob bank


WASHINGTON: A man acted cunningly when he used the Uber service to rob a bank, recently.

Mirror reports, the suspect, Jason Christmas, 42, from Southfield, Michigan, then forced the Uber driver to wait outside the bank until his ‘task’ was completed to take him home.

Christmas was however arrested on suspicion of robbing the Huntington Bank before 5pm on November 16.

According to police, the suspect took an Uber service vehicle to the bank and asked the driver to wait while he went inside and robbed the bank.

The Uber driver was completely unaware of the robber’s agenda as he waited outside.

“This is a very unusual way to commit an armed robbery in our city,” said Southfield Police Chief Elvin Barren.

After committing the robbery, the Uber driver drove the suspect back to the block of flats he lived in near Lahser before the police arrived outside the apartment to arrest Christmas.

Southfield police released body camera footage showing Christmas being handcuffed and arrested.

He was questioned by the police if he had been shot because there was a ‘red substance’ found all over his body.

However, Christmas revealed that the ‘red stuff’ was from the dye left in the wallet handed over to him by the bank.

A police officer asked him: “Did you get shot…. why do you have this red stuff all over your (body)?”

Barron said the suspect was wearing clothing similar to the robbery that was covered in red dye.

Police found the loot money with red ink on it.

Authorities were able to track down the Uber driver and he was re-arrested after police found his license plate number on CCTV footage at the bank.

However, the driver denied his involvement in the crime.

Christmas is now facing charges of bank robbery.
