Ore. police: Caseworker an oblivious getaway driver
The caseworker's new client robbed a Chase bank then was driven to his motel
MEDFORD, Ore. — Police in Medford, Ore., say a mental health caseworker became an unwitting getaway driver in a bank robbery.
A new client asked the caseworker to help him move from one motel to another on Tuesday — and make a couple of extra stops.
A police spokesman says the unidentified male caseworker waited in a county car while the man walked into a Chase Bank branch, saying he needed to make a withdrawal. Inside, the man reportedly became aggressive and demanded money. A bank employee emptied a till of cash and the man walked out — to his waiting ride.
The Oregonian reports that witnesses wrote down the license number of the car and police arrested Nicholas Theodore York at his new motel.
