WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Court documents say a Waterloo man who robbed a bank in 2011 was so nervous about the act he accidently demanded $80 from the teller instead of $80,000.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier (http://bit.ly/13SbKsY ) reports 30-year-old Kurtis Culbert submitted a series of notes to Black Hawk County District Court before pleading guilty last month to second-degree robbery.
Culbert says he was ordered to rob the bank by individuals he knew when he served time in prison. He says he was shaky when writing a holdup note and the teller misread his request for $80,000.
The teller at the U.S. Bank branch in Waterloo read $80 in the note and gave it to Culbert. He left and was later arrested.
Culbert faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced.
