Would-be robber mistakes water office for bank

A Kentucky man made a critical mistake Tuesday when he tried to rob a bank at gunpoint.

It wasn't actually a bank, but the office for the local water district.

When an employee at the Jessamine South Elkhorn Water District told the man there wasn't any cash, he said, "I know you have money. It's a bank.''

The building had been a bank branch until about four months ago.

The man's not the only one who got the buildings confused.

"We've had people come in here asking to cash a check," Diana Clark, the office manager for the water district told the Lexington Herald-Leader.

The man left empty-handed. So far, no arrests have been made.
