Man Arrested in Attempted Tahoe Bank Robbery Case

Posted: Updated:

The South Lake Tahoe Police Department has a man in custody after they say he almost robbed a bank.

Police say 64-year-old Robert Allen Larson walked into El Dorado Savings in South Tahoe last Thursday and handed the teller a note demanding money. But after he spoke with her, police say he decided he didn't want to go through with the robbery. They say he then got on his bike and pedaled home.

Early Sunday morning, police got a call from Larsen at Barton Memorial Hospital.

Officers say he wanted to confess and gave them permission to search his home and collect the items used in what began as a robbery.

He is charged with attempted robbery.
