A man has robbed a bank using a homemade ‘bomb’ made out of a sex toy and a mobile phone.
So far so random.
When the man told cashiers at PNC Bank in Pittsburgh that the suspicious-looking item trailing tape and wires he had hidden under his shirt was a bomb, they handed over the cash before calling 911.
When police eventually caught up with Aaron Stein and placed him under arrest they sent in a bomb-disposal robot to deal with the suspected explosive device, only to find it was made out of a vibrator.
The 35-year-old reportedly created his pretend bomb out of a box, some tape, a mobile phone cord and a dildo.
He now faces the rare charge of ‘possessing a facsimile weapon of mass destruction’.
