Md. Man Says Son Robbed Bank For Drug Money

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — The father of a man charged with robbing a bank in Frederick says his son had just been released from a psychiatric ward, where he was being treated for drug addiction.

Thomas Schultz tells The Frederick News-Post that his son, Andrew Schultz, had been released from a Montgomery County psychiatric ward less than 24 hours before the robbery at SunTrust Bank.

Police arrested Andrew Schultz on Friday afternoon after finding him hiding under a pool deck in a housing subdivision.

Police say the bank was shut down for three hours after Schultz demanded money from the teller.

Thomas Schultz says his son was being treated for crack cocaine but checked out of the ward on Thursday. He says his son wanted
money to buy drugs.

    Corrupt California DEA where stealing drugs from evidence vaults and reselling them to cover extensive credit card debt.
    They also are creating suspects by planting evidence just so that they can steal from them.
    Given the choice of suspension or dealing with their debt most DEA are thinking outside the box.
