Earlier today, a judge at the Central Criminal Court sentenced two men to twelve years in prison for attempting to rob a branch of Chelmsford Savings Bank. During the trial the judge had repeatedly to ask the members of the jury to stop laughing, as they listened to the evidence. In summing up, the judge said the robbery was not funny, but he described the men as pathetic. He continued, ‘If everything had gone according to plan, this would have been no joke.’ He told the jury to find the men guilty.
In January of this year, the two men, brothers, Michael (63) and Laurence Parsons (59), took the bus to Chelmsford town center. They got off just outside the bank but left their bag, containing masks and an old Webley revolver, on the bus. Not wanting to abandon their plans, the men went into a toy shop opposite the bank and bought two clown masks and a toy gun.
The masks were too small and the men had difficulty seeing where they were going. Wearing their masks, they crossed the road, ran into the launderette next to the bank and shouted. ‘This is a stick-up!’ Surprised customers laughed and suggested that they try next door.
At the second attempt, the men found the bank. Witnesses described how Michael slipped and fell on the polished floor as the two men ran into the bank. Meanwhile, his brother went up to a counter, not realizing that it was unattended, pointed his gun and demanded 5,000 pounds. Surprised customers laughed as Laurence repeated his demand. Getting no reply, he decided to give up their attempt, but tripped and fell over his brother who was still on the floor.
Later in the day, the men received treatment in hospital for their injuries. They explained what had happened to the doctor, who then called the police. At first, the police refused to believe the men’s story, but arrested them the following day, when the missing bag was found.
