Fairfield, CT (The Weekly Vice) - Albert Bailey, a 27-year-old Bridgeport man and his 16-year-old unidentified accomplice were jailed after they allegedly attempted to rob a bank after calling ahead of time for a "money bag to go".
According to Fairfield police, two men called the People's United Bank in Fairfield to inform employees that they were on their way to rob it. They reportedly instructed employees to have a bag ready with $100,000 in large bills and no dye pack, or there would be a "blood bath" when they arrived.
The suspects arrived at the bank about 10 minutes later, handing the teller a note demanding the cash. Employees, however had already placed a call to police.
Bailey attempted to flee the scene after employees handed him a bag containing $900 and the dye pack he didn't want included. He was instead confronted by police who had arrived on scene just as he was attempting his getaway.
Bailey then dropped the bag of money on the ground, which caused the dye pack to explode.
Bailey tried to jump into a car driven by his accomplice however, the vehicle was stopped at the scene and both suspects were arrested without further incident.
Bailey and his accomplice were booked into jail on charges of first-degree robbery and threatening in the first degree. Bailey is currently on probation for a previous bank hold-up.
