Homeless man robs bank of $1 for health care in jail

The man handed the bank teller a note that read, "This is a holdup. Give me a dollar"

PORTLAND, Ore. — A man allegedly robbed a bank for $1 and then waited there for deputies to arrest him, Clackamas County sheriff's deputies said.

Deputies said he did so as a way to go back to jail to receive free medical care.

The 50-year-old man entered the bank branch at 9171 S.E. 82nd Ave., demanded the buck, received it and then went and had a seat in the lobby, deputies said.
