NEPTUNE BEACH , Fla., May 28 (UPI) -- What a sticky situation...

A Tennessee man has been charged with armed robbery and resisting arrest without violence after he allegedly used a stick to stick up a SunTrust Bank in Neptune Beach, Fla.


Andrew Murray reportedly entered the bank while wearing a mask and carrying an object wrapped in a black plastic bag. He then yelled, "Nobody is going to get hurt if you give me $50,000 from the vault," News4Jax reported. According to witnesses, the object in the bag was a stick. Murray took off with an undisclosed amount of cash and ran into a neighborhood.

Police eventually located the 33-year-old and took him into custody after using a Taser to subdue him.

Murray had $124 in cash on him when he was arrested and police were able to recover a mask, gloves and a pair of boots nearby.
