Bizarre bank break-in ends in a real mess

Suspect was bored, on drugs, he says

A 16-year-old Wyandotte boy said he wasn’t trying to steal any money when he broke into a bank early Sunday morning, smashed an ATM and wreaked several thousand dollars worth of damage.

But he did make a deposit.

The boy was arrested around 3:40 a.m. Sunday inside the Monroe Bank & Trust, 467 Euclid in Wyandotte. Responding officers found a disturbing scene.

Police said the boy, who already had a pending juvenile court charge of being a minor in possession of alcohol, used a hammer and screwdriver to chisel a cement block from under the ATM machine outside the bank. Then he used a chunk of the concrete to destroy the facing of the ATM. Police said he did not get any money.

The youth also smashed open the rear door of the bank, tried to break into two night security boxes and then made his way to the bank’s second floor, according to a police report filed in juvenile court. There he took off most of his clothing, sat on the railing over the lobby and defecated on the floor below, the report said.

In custody, the boy told officers he was bored and had taken four Xanax pills beforehand. He also tested positive for marijuana when he was admitted to the Wayne County Juvenile Detention Facility.

The youth is being held on $7,500 bond pending a Dec. 6 pretrial hearing in Wayne County juvenile court.
