PITTSBURGH (AP) — A western Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty to robbing a bank with a fake bomb made out of phone wires, duct tape and a sex toy.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that Aaron Stein pleaded guilty on Thursday to charges including robbery, aggravated assault and making bomb threats in the June crime.
An attorney for the 36-year-old Pittsburgh man says he discovered that $9,000 he’d invested to cover his approaching honeymoon was gone. The attorney says desperation drove him to don an Iron Man mask and take a fake bomb to threaten tellers and rob a bank in Crafton, just west of Pittsburgh.
Stein’s bond was revoked until his May 31 sentencing.
