Man Robs Bank, Calls Taxi for Getaway Service

If you're going to rob a bank, it's a good idea to have your plan thought all the way through before starting:

Taxi driver James Anderson tells the Missoulian newspaper the man was acting strangely when he picked him up at a Missoula coffee shop.

He says the man first asked to be taken to the University of Montana campus, but couldn't give Anderson a specific location. The man then asked to be taken to a hotel, but not before stopping to buy cigarettes.

The cab fare was $7.50, and Anderson says the man tipped him $5 as they arrived at the hotel. Officers then pulled up and surrounded the taxi with guns drawn.
