A police report says on Nov. 15 a man, later identified as Nico Michael Carmiche, 23, walked into the bank and gave the teller a note that said "Robbery Put it all in envelope $12,000 I have a bomb. Do what i say or I Tell my friend outside who has a police scanner To press The Button and This establishment will not Exist. act Normal and do as i say, and no one will get hurt."

The teller put the note on the counter and alerted her supervisor.

Police said Carmiche then walked outside and got into a black Honda Civic and drove away. 

An investigator was able to pull a fingerprint from the holdup note, which connected Carmiche to the case.

He was later arrested Nov. 30 and charged with attempted armed robbery and threat to discharge a destructive device.

Carmiche was denied bond during a Friday morning court hearing.
