Man arrested for attempted bank robbery

Posted: June 3, 2013 - 3:13pm  |  Updated: June 3, 2013 - 3:21pm


An Evans man was nabbed in a bank parking lot after what police say was an attempted robbery Monday afternoon.

Ronald Pak, 47, of the 4200 block of Aerie Circle, was arrested as he was leaving the Wells Fargo Bank at 489 Furys Ferry Road in Martinez, said Columbia County Sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.

Deputies responded to an alarm at the bank shortly after 2 p.m. when Morris said Pak approached a teller, said he had a gun and demanded cash.

Pak didn’t show a weapon and left without receiving any money, and was apprehended while driving away from the bank parking lot, Morris said.

Charges against Pak are pending, Morris said.

The money have always made

The money have always made banks a high temptation for the robbers. What's this man history with banks? Has he ever tried to get a loan? Has he ever had a bank account? The answer to these questions could give us some interesting clues on the actual reasons for his attempt. Now that you think about it a more constructive approach from his side would have been to just apply for a loan. This source gives people the information they need to get some money. These steps are built up to make money access easier for a wider category of people.


Actually it is very

Actually it is very surprising to hear that he didn’t take any money from the bank even after making such a risky move. I wonder what exactly was going through his mind while doing such an action.
