Things didn’t exactly go according to plan for a man who attempted to rob a Florida bank in April.

When Felipe Cruz approached a teller at a Chase Bank branch in Pompano Beach, he came prepared with a note reading, “Give me the 100s 50s  20s now. Do not set the alarm. Hurry!!!” But when the teller stepped away from the bullet-proof glass, Cruz panicked and ran, leaving behind the note.

Police were hot on his trail, armed with a useful clue: Cruz’s name and email address, which he had helpfully provided on a printout of a Chase Bank online job application. Yes, that’s the paper he chose for his stick-up note.

Although Cruz is still on the loose, FBI investigators are confident he will be apprehended. “He probably should have continued looking for honest work,” FBI agent Michael Leverock told the Broward Sun Sentinel.
