>>> well, a little planning goes a long way, but clearly one bank robber in maryland did not come prepared. take a look at the surveillance video from a pnc bank . the suspect was trying to leave when he dropped stacks of cash all over the floor. so he frantically tries to pick up all the money and decided to use an open umbrella as a better way to get the cash out of the bank.

>> that's bad luck .

>> later, police, when they caught up to him, he tried to run away, but he slipped on some ice and cut his head. so, yes, i guess opening that umbrella was bad luck , savannah. what not to do.
