UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - A Utica man faces felony charges. Police say he attempted to rob three different banks armed with a toilet plunger. Surveillance photos captured the suspect entering the Key Bank on Genesee Street Thursday afternoon.


Around 1:30 Thursday afternoon, Utica Police responded to the Key Bank for a report of an attempted robbery. Officers also were contacted by two other banks that said the man had also entered there and demanded money.

Bank employees say he came in started yelling obscenities, asking them to put money in a bag. Police say he threatened the tellers with the plunger.

Officers in an unmarked car responded to the scene and saw the suspect walking away. When the suspect saw the officers, he ran. Police caught up with him and took him into custody.

Lawrence Deptola, 49, of Cottage Place in Utica is charged with attempted robbery, a class "E" felony.

The plunger was recovered inside Citizen's Bank.

Oh thank god! I was worried that the plunger didn't make it. I'm calm now.

But seriously, a toilet plunger? I'm not complaining, but this guy definitely deserves to be awarded with "Robber of the Year". More like, Robber of All Time.

I don't blame him for using a plunger as a weapon. Deadly little things.

Ever get one of those things stuck on your face? Sucks the air right out of you.

Well, I think it's safe to say his life of crime has gone down the toilet.











I'm so sorry.

He must have left his brain at home and took along the plunger instead Posted Image

If stupidity was an artform, this guy would be the freaking Mona Lisa. Truly a stunning example of how NOT to rob a bank. For bonus points, he isn't even wearing anything to conceal his identity.

Mario is short on coins or something?

Didn't expect him to have money problems.

Also he tried 3 banks.
Did the bank managers tell him "Sorry, but the money is in another bank."?

This guys tried to rob three, not one not two but THREE, banks? With a toilet plunger!?

This guy should be a comedian. You have to have a sense of humor to try to rob three places with a bathroom item.

Well, it works for the Daleks!

I...guess this is better than if he had brought a gun and actually caused some sort of panic? Granted, this was probably out of stupidity rather than actually caring about anyone else, but still. :P

I don't know what's worse: the guy for thinking he could get away with robbing banks with a toilet plunger, or the fact that he was able to attempt that three times before the police apprehended him.

Of course, the first thing I fear when I see a robber walk into a bank is a toilet plunger.

Sounds like a stupid crime I heard about where a thief thought squirting himself with lemon juice made him invisible when trying to rob a bank, needless to say ROBBERY FAIL!

At least he stuck with his original plan for a couple of times...He just couldn't resist going in and out.

I do not know what is a better robbery, A plunger or a Darth Vader mask.

I'd say it is a tie. Both senarios are hard to comprehend when you think about it...I can't believe that this guy got the opportunity to demonstrate himself as an idiot three times with a toilet plunger of all things.

I read this topic and got a good laugh out of it. It was much needed too as I had a very lousy day. So thank you all for article and the puns too. Thank you very much. Posted Image
