Veteran criminal Nathan Pugh, 49 walked in to a Wells Fargo bank in Dallas on July 26 and presented his holdup note to a teller (claiming to have a 'bom'). The teller told Pugh that she could not release large amounts of money without proper ID and convinced Pugh to turn over both a Texas state ID card and his Wells Fargo debit card, both in his own name. Police arrived just as Pugh was leaving and after an attenpt to grab a hostage, he was arrested. (He even failed with the hostage--a woman carrying a child---who still managed to take Pugh to the floor.) [Dallas Morning News, 8-5-10]
