Campaign of the Month: June 2013
Rise of the Dead
On June 27, 2007, at approximately 8:05 a.m., a bank teller was working at her bank in Charlotte, North Carolina, when she observed the bank manager approaching the outside front door. The teller observed a man, later identified as Carl Stewart, running towards the bank manager. The manager pushed him away and attempted to enter the bank. Then, Carl struck the bank manager in the head with a handgun. After a teller attempted to move towards the alarm button, Carl instructed everyone to get on the floor. He told two tellers to open the cash vault. Their attempts failed and Carl settled for money from the teller’s drawer. The money was placed in a black plastic garbage bag which Carl had brought into the bank. After retrieving the money, Carl had three bank employees crawl to an office and stay on the floor. Before the bank, Carl asked for and received car keys from a bank employee. After which, Carl allegedly said, “Don’t call the police for five minutes or I’ll come back tomorrow and kill you all.” He then exited the bank. On June 29, 2007, Carl was convicted on armed bank robbery.
