Kerry Johnson was accused of pulling off a clever bank heist after playing blackjack at a casino and going back to proceed with the game. He was arrested for robbery and burglary

On August 26th, 2016, a City National Bank in West Virginia was reportedly robbed at around 3:30 pm, and police, suspecting Kerry Johnson, filed a criminal complaint against him and arrested him

The complaint presented at Kanawha County Magistrate Court stated that Johnson had been playing blackjack at Mardi Gras Casino, but this was just a decoy to use as an alibi

After playing for a while, he is said to have been spotted leaving the casino for some time after having sneakily left a $25 chip at the blackjack table

Johnson proceeded to the bank, where he demanded cash from an employee, saying that he had a bomb and weapon in his possession. He then drove off in a green Mazda Miata with cash handed to him

It’s reported that he went straight back to the blackjack casino table and carried on with his gambling activities

Detectives put out a tweet with pictures of the robbery, asking the public to help identify the assailant. Johnson was immediately identified

He denied all accusations, claiming that as his alibi, he was at the Mardi Gras casino between 10 am and 4:30 pm. Police still searched his house, and a wad of cash was recovered stashed into a couch
