Its a Stick-Up Would-Be Robber Held

Date Posted: 2001-03-09

A man was arrested on Monday for trying to hold up a Naha bank with a stick. Sixty two year old Tadashi Uehara went into the Yogi branch office of Kaiho Bank, brandishing a 40 cm stick and demanded 300,000 from one of the tellers.

There were four customers in the bank at the time and five employees, one of whom immediately pushed an alarm button. Police were there in seconds, as the bank was only 50 m from Naha Police Station.

Bank manager Mr. Miyagi said he was glad his staff had regularly practiced what to do in the event of a hold-up.

Nobody was injured in the attempted raid.
