Banker Robber

Kathryn Quinn

A former bank clerk accused of carrying out seven armed bank robberies has told police in Poland he needed the cash to pay back a bank loan.

Jobless Marcin Figurski, 28, is said to have netted nearly 19,000 GBP in a series of raids around Krakow using his inside knowledge of banks to hit them when they would be most vulnerable.

He was caught when one cashier faked a heart attack and Figurski was arrested in the confusion.

A police spokesman said: "He was in debt with a loan and had no income since he'd lost his job in a bank."

"He admits to the robberies but says he was only taking what he thought the banks owed him," they added.
