Uber driver tips off police before three teens rob an OKC bank

A trio of bank robbers is in jail after calling Uber to arrange for a getaway car.

Three teenagers, whose names were not released, were arrested in Oklahoma City Tuesday where cops picked them up while they were waiting for Uber driver Brandon Case to come get them.

“I turn the corner and come up on Midfirst Bank, and all I see are cop cars,” Case told Oklahoma News 4. “I’m like ‘this is not normal.’ ”

According to Case, he was sitting across the street waiting for his fare when he saw cops walking three alleged perps out of the bank in handcuffs.

He exited his car and asked the arresting officers what happened and was told an “attempted” robbery had been foiled after another delivery driver dropped off the three teens, then pulled away and called authorities to say the would-be robbers seemed suspicious.

“They called me for a getaway car,” according to Case. “If you’re going to do something like that, have your own car.”

Case said he was relieved police responded to the crime scene before he was able to pick up his passengers and inadvertently be made an accomplice.

“I don’t know whether to laugh or cry,” he said.
