Police are hunting an absent-minded robber who accidentally handed his gun to a cashier instead of a swag bag. The thief raided the Halifax bank in Cheapside in the City of London and demanded £700,000 in cash, reports the Daily Telegraph. But after making his demands, the man, wearing shades and a flat cap, gave his gun to the cashier instead of a bag. The male cashier froze as the crook realised his mistake and made a grab for his gun before running off as the security shutters came down.                             –DT
