So the Philadelphia Phillies won the World Series and as has come to be expected in any city where a major sports franchise, or even major college team has won a championship… riots inevitably follow.
Over turned car’s, fires, fights, attacks on the police…
you know, the usual.
Some idiot took it to new extremes this time however, he robbed a bank.
That’s right he robbed a bank in order to purchase World Series memorabilia.
one fan may have taken his devotion a bit too far when police say he robbed a bank and later allegedly funded a shopping spree for Phillies gear with the stolen cash.
About 10 a.m. yesterday, a man, who police did not identify, entered a PNC Bank on Welsh Road near Roosevelt Boulevard and slipped the teller a demand note.
Shortly after, the man, wearing a red and gray hat pulled down over his face and a beige hoodie, fled westbound on Welsh with an undisclosed amount of cash, said a detective from Northeast Detectives.
About 20 minutes later, cops found the suspect, who police have not identified, a few miles away coming out of the Modell’s Sporting Goods store at the Roosevelt Mall, Cottman and Bustleton avenues.
