Bank Robbery Turned Prayer Session Mid Robbery

praying-robberAn Indianapolis robbery went all wrong when a 23-year-old male, Gregory Smith, attempted to hold-up a check-cashing business and instead ended up praying and running out with $20 and the clerk’s cellphone. When Smith pulled out his gun to threaten clerk Angela Montez, her first reaction was to start praying. Smith felt so bad, he broke down into tears and tried to explain to her that he is  an ex-serviceman and had a young baby. He also said:

“But we’re going to be homeless. I haven’t had a job in months. I’ve tried everything.'”

At one point when Smith reached for the gun again, Montez got really scared and and started praying for forgiveness, which made Smith take out the only bullet in the gun and give it to her, saying:

“Just take it and talk to me… No one will talk to me. I have nobody.'”

After talking and praying together for about 40 minutes without any disturbances, Smith allegedly left after taking $20 and Montez’s cellphone. The next day Smith turned himself in after his mother had seen him on T.V. and urged him to do it.

    This is more sad then tragic, this is more tragic then funny.
    But the person who left him without job, probably laughing.
