23-Year-Old Father Robs A Bank To Pay For His Daughter’s Chemo, After Insurance Runs Out

Detroit, Michigan – On Aug. 12. Brian Randolph, 23, robbed the Vibe Credit Union in South Lyon, Michigan, after passing the teller a note saying he had a shotgun concealed in his pants and that he wanted $20,000.

He escaped with $8,100 in cash — but his poor disguise gave him away, and police tracked him down two days later following an appeal for information on Facebook.

Randolph told police he needed the money to help pay for his daughter’s chemotherapy treatments, authorities said.

While the note indicated he had a shotgun hidden in his clothes, he never revealed the firearm and police told ABC News that he said he did not actually bring a gun with him.

He has been charged with armed robbery and bank robbery and had his bond set at $500,000, police said.
