The second thought robber: Man turned self in for bank robbery

View Comments

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – Authorities say a man accused of robbing a bank in western North Dakota called 911 three days later from his home in Kansas and told officers to arrest him for “making a mistake.”

Court papers say 53-year-old Kent Anthony Clemens held up the Gate City Bank in Williston on July 18. On July 21, he turned himself in to police in Topeka, Kan.

Authorities say Clemens was sitting on his front porch when police arrived and held out his hands to be handcuffed. Clemens is being held in North Dakota. His attorney wouldn’t comment Tuesday on specifics in the case.

Clemens told authorities he believed he made off with about $800.
