Bank robber David Wayne Oliver was arrested in Colorado Springs after he decided to share the money he had stolen with random people on the streets, Sky News reported, citing police.
After targeting the Academy Bank, and threatening to use a weapon, the man left it, with an unspecified sum of money, and then started throwing money all over the place and shouting "Merry Christmas".
