Oregon homeless man robs bank for $1, claiming he did it for the healthcare

Oregon_ Timothy-Dean-AlsipOregon man Dean Alsip walked into a Clackamas County Bank of America branch and handed a teller a note that said, “This is a hold up. Give me a dollar.” The teller gave Alsip the dollar and then the 50-year-old homeless man took a seat in the lobby and calmly waited for the police to arrive to arrest him.

Alsip was originally charged with second-degree robbery and third degree theft for the dollar robbery, but the charges were dismissed, however, Alsip remains in Clackamas County jail because he failed to pay his $40,000 bail on the theft charge. According to officials, Alsip has no permanent address and has no criminal record.

When asked why he did it, Alsip responded, “I did it for the free healthcare in jail.”
