Man's Unusual Post-Robbery Pit Stop Has Everyone Wondering What He Was Thinking

Not that it would ever happen, but if I robbed a bank you can bet I'd be getting the hell outta Dodge. A car would be waiting, fake ID in place, and no looking back.

But apparently not everyone has the same idea as me. Just ask Samuel Jevon Reaves, who was caught red (and greasy) handed after robbing a local bank.

Reaves, 32, hit up a Wells Fargo bank in Gainseville, Florida, and stole more than $10,000. According to the Gainseville Police Department, Reaves entered the bank and told a teller he needed money. The teller asked for his debit card, to which Reaves replied, "This is a robbery. Give me all your money in the bank.” The teller obliged, Reaves thanked her, and then he left.

But it's where cops found Samuel Jevon Reaves that really confused them.

Reaves left the bank with more than $10,000 in a bag, then decided he was hungry. He took the money, then took a casual stroll across the parking lot and went to KFC.

A bank employee followed the robber across the parking lot, taking pictures of him with his phone. According to police, Reaves sat down next to a woman while he ate his meal, still carrying his bag of money. He later asked her for a cigarette.

When police arrived at the KFC, Reaves told them he robbed the bank. He is being held at Alachua County jail. His bond is set at $250,000.

It kind of begs the question...what were you thinking? Clearly, he wasn't.
