A man has admitted to stealing more than $700 during a Missouri bank heist, but the case against him was not exactly difficult to prove, KOLR-TV reports.

Authorities allege that on July 30, Michael C. Loyd walked into the Bank of America branch on West Kearney Street in Springfield, Missouri, wearing a cut-off T-shirt, blue gym shorts, and one orange shoe.

Loyd, 30, who has multiple tattoos on his arms and had an apparent expletive written or tattooed on the front of his neck, then gave a bank teller a copy of his birth certificate with the following written in pink: “Give Your Money Now. Don’t Say Anything. I Have A Partner Outside.”



Although there was not actually a partner outside, the teller didn’t know that and provided Loyd with $754 from a drawer. Loyd then exited the building and drove away in his roommate’s pick-up truck, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

As Loyd was fleeing in the truck, he grew scared from passing police cars responding to the robbery, so threw out his birth certificate, ID, and some of the money out of a window, according to court documents.




Loyd texted his roommate and instructed her to tell police that the truck was stolen. He also said she should begin listening to a police scanner.

The bank bandit then called Ashley, whom he described as his “lover” so he could “tell her what he had done,” court records state.

At some point, the boyfriend of Loyd’s roommate called police and officers responded to Loyd’s home in the Lazy Acres Mobile Home Park, where Loyd quickly confessed and was arrested.




In an interview with police, Loyd said that he and gotten into an argument with Ashley and wanted to “prove a point.” It is not clear what point he was trying to prove.

Loyd also was wearing an ankle monitoring bracelet when he was arrested, which showed that he was in the bank at the time of the robbery. It was not immediately clear why Loyd was wearing the monitor, but someone with his same name has a lengthy rap sheet that includes recent charges criminal charges, according to Law & Crime.




On Friday, Loyd pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery. He could be sentenced to up to 20 years in prison and fined $250,000, although the judge has the discretion to impose a lesser sentence.
