Johnson then left the casino and drove to a Charleston West Virginia bank which he proceeded to rob by giving the teller a note claiming he had a bomb and another weapon.

After getting away with $5,000 in cash - Johnson went back to the casino and continued to gamble.

According to the Charleston Gazette - $500 of the stolen money turned up at the blackjack table where Johnson was gambling and another chunk was found stuffed in couch cushions.
