Man robs bank to get medical care in jail.
James Richard Verone woke up June 9 with a sense of anticipation.
He took a shower.
Ironed his shirt.
Hailed a cab.
Then robbed a bank.
He wasn’t especially nervous. If anything, Verone said he was excited to finally execute his plan to gain access to free medical care.
“I prepared myself for this,” Verone said from behind a thick glass window in the Gaston County Jail Thursday morning.
