A Kentucky man is accused of robbing two banks of more than $8,000 by brandishing a toy gun.
Paris police charged 35-year-old Cheikh Gueye with robbery and resisting arrest Wednesday.
Tellers at one of the banks told police the man slipped them a note demanding that they hand over money or he would kill everybody. As police were searching for him, another robbery was reported at a second bank.
Police captured Gueye at a nearby grocery store where the weapon he was carrying was determined to be fake. He reportedly told detectives that “it was just a game.”
