Robbery FAIL

I don't know a whole lot about robbing banks, but I'm pretty sure one of the keys to a successful heist is making sure that the building you're holding up actually contains a bank:
Police in Kentucky said an attempted armed robber left a former bank without any loot after finding the facility had been converted to a water district office.

Nicholasville police spokesman Scott Harvey said the suspect entered the Jessamine South Elkhorn Water District office, which used to be a Farmer's Bank, at about 1 p.m. Tuesday and brandished a revolver, The Lexington (K.Y.) Herald-Leader reported Thursday.

However, Harvey said the suspect "left with nothing" after employees explained to him that the bank had left the building. No one was injured in the incident, police said.
The article does not go on to say whether or not the man decided to pay his water bill since he was there anyway, but I'm guessing no.
