"Police say $83 dollar bandit in custody"
The Denver post

In the article "Police say $83 dollar bandit in custody" by The Denver post, it talks about who the $83 dollar bandit is, his past criminal record and that the police have him in custody. The bandit was identified as Frank Lewis who is 37 years old. He earned this nick name by the odd amounts of money that he demanded when he robbed a bank. He got away with robbing thirteen banks by handing the teller a note which had the demands, instead of holding up the whole bank. The amounts were usually very random like 83 dollars, it would be stupid to rob a bank in the first place because of all the security and video surveillance. Demanding 83 dollars would be an even more ridicules thing to do because no matter how much you get, you will still be charged with robbery or even armed robbery so he should have known he was going to get caught and should have just gone all out and got more just in case he got away with it. This just shows how desperate people are for money no matter the amount and what they will do to get it. Clearly, this was an absurd criminal and needed to be stopped as soon as possible.
