A teenager looking for advice on a career in the exciting world of bank security received a first-hand experience from the criminal’s point-of-view when some armored car drivers called the police on him.

Kieon Sharp, 18, approached the armored car sitting outside of a bank in Charleston, WV and tried to talk to the driver. The driver then told police that the teen was allegedly holding a gun while trying to rob him.

Police located the teenager and took him in for questioning. They learned he was just trying to talk to the driver to ask him how he could apply for a job. Police not only released him, but also offered him a job application during their interview.

Hopefully someone from Capitol Hill realizes that unemployment has gotten so bad that applicants now have to get arrested just to apply for a job.
