A bank robber failed to get any money from a teller after a security guard realized that she was using a large water gun as her weapon, according to police in Texas.
Amarillo police said that they have arrested 31-year-old Lashondra Deniece Sandoval-Martin, after being accused of stealing a pickup truck and holding up National Bank.
According to the criminal complaint, Sandoval-Martin stole the pickup truck that a worker left running with the keys in the ignition, then drove it to the National Bank located. She walked into an area that is restricted to the public and pointed her water gun at a teller, demanding cash.
When a security guard walked into the room, Sandoval-Martin pointed the water gun at him. That is when the security realized that she was holding a large water gun.
He attempted to detain her, but she managed to break free and ran out of the bank.
Sandoval-Martin was later apprehended and charged with aggravated robbery and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
