Rollin' straight to prison

Today's crime tip: If you're confined to a wheelchair -- even a motorized wheelchair -- then bank robbery probably isn't for you.

A man in Merritt Island, FL, held up the Space Coast Credit Union by claiming he had a bomb in his motorized wheelchair, police said. Christopher Warren Reed, 45, was arrested by police 10 minutes later.

Extra points: Reed told deputies that he was ordered to pull the holdup by two men who threatened him with a gun.

Double extra points: He hid the loot in his prosthetic leg.
