Playing hooky to rob a bank

WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - November 24, 2009

Authorities charge the 17-year-old skipped school to rob a bank.

Warwick police Capt. Sean Collins says the boy handed a threatening note riddled with misspellings to a teller.

Police say the robbery was recorded on surveillance cameras and the teenager's fingerprints are on the note.

While the kid got away with some money, he didn't have much time to spend it.

He was busted six hours after the robbery.

Police aren't releasing the suspect's name because of his age.
