I Have A Gub
Written: November 7, 2012

When I tell you that this story involves a bank located inside a Walmart Store, you sort of get the hint that this is gonna be one of those oddball doozies. You’d be right!

On January 17, 2012, around 9ish in the morning, Jacory Stephon Walker entered the 1st Convenience Bank, located inside a Walmart Store in Waxahachie, Texas. Seems that young Mr. Walker, now 19 and from Dallas, TX, wanted to withdraw money from his bank account.  Unfortunately, he didn’t have his account information with him. What’s a guy to do?

In Walker’s case, he approached a teller, who apparently asked for the customer’s name and social security number.  Not bad customer service (The good folks at Citi, Chase, Bank of America, or Wells Fargo probably wouldn’t have been so helpful, but hey, this is Texas and we’re in a Walmart.  Sadly, the teller informed Walker that he had a debit in his bank account. All of which might explain why Walker left the premises.

Within ten minutes of leaving the branch, about 9:40 a.m., Walker returned and went back to the same helpful teller.  Walker explained that he had $20 to deposit towards the amount owed on his account, and the teller began to fill out a deposit slip.

Not unlike the wonderful Woody Allen film “Take The Money And Run,” Walker seems to have had a gub?

What’s a gub?  You’re gonna have to see the film.

In any event, as the teller filled out the slip, Walker cleared his throat and slid a note over to the bank employee: “I have a gun. No noise. Just money.”

Ummm, young Bank-Walker, not that I’m Obi Wan-Kenobi or anything but you do realize that you just slid a hold-up note to the same teller to whom you earlier gave your name and social security number . . . and that allowed the employee to also find your bank account, which probably has your address and phone number on it?

In any event, the teller gave Walker cash from the drawer.

Walker left the premises.

Walker was apprehended by the Waxahachie Police Department as he left the Walmart. A blue-light special arrest.

After pleading guilty to one count of bank robbery in June 2012, Walker was sentenced on November 5, 2012, in federal court for the Northern District of Texas to 37 months in federal prison. How many years did Virgil Starkwell get?
