Bank robbery suspect claims bomb, drinks coffee
September 10, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Aaron Justin

A would-be bank robbery who allegedly told a teller he had a bomb before helping himself to a cup of coffee and walking out of the building pleaded not guilty to second-degree burglary.

Aaron Brandon Justin, 35, entered a Chase Bank in San Mateo on Sept. 4, 2013 and handed a teller a note that read “I have a bomb, give me the money,” according to the District Attorney’s Office.

After the teller panicked and froze, she regained herself and pushed the alarm button but by that time Justin had already poured himself some coffee and left the bank. He was apprehended nearby and identified by witnesses, according to prosecutors.

Justin pleaded not guilty to second-degree burglary, attempted robbery and making a false explosives claim. He did not waive his right to a speedy trial and returns to court Sept. 19 for a preliminary hearing.

He is in custody on $50,000 bail.
