Man robs bank then throws cash in the air shouting ‘Merry Christmas’

A man with a white beard has been arrested for allegedly robbing a bank and throwing stolen money in the air while shouting “Merry Christmas” to people on the street.

David Wayne Oliver was arrested at a nearby Starbucks in Colorado Springs after he targeted the Academy Bank, according to a police report.

The suspect had “threatened the use of a weapon” and left the bank with an unspecified amount of money, police said.

Local TV station KKTV quoted witness Dion Pascale as saying Oliver went outside the bank and started throwing money “all over the place”.

“He started throwing money out of the bag” before yelling, “Merry Christmas,” he was quoted as saying.
