Everyone is told about the dangers of hitchhiking: you simply do not know who the driver might be. The lesson was learned by Mark E. White, 50, who decided to rob a bank just three weeks after being paroled from prison. He then flagged down a car for a ride — driven by a cop.
White reportedly robbed a bank while threatening to detonate a bomb. He was only two blocks away in Saginaw when he decided to hitch a ride. He had just served a sentence for drunk driving and has a prior bank robbery conviction.
He is now charged with bank robbery, making a false bomb threat, attempted carjacking, assault with intent to commit a felony, assault and resisting arrest.
