More to story after arrest of Deputy for bank robbery

"A former Davidson County deputy accused of bank robbery worked security there prior to robbery" on Salisbury Post headline may begin the judgement of this man, but there is so much more to the story.

"Jeffrey Dean Athey, 51, entered the F and M Bank at 418 W. Main St. about 3:35 p.m. on Feb. 6 and showed a Glock 41 semi-automatic handgun. He requested $1,000 and then left the bank."
He is accused of robbing the bank he worked for. Think about that one. Top that off with he only wanted $1,000 and knew exactly what the penalty would be for that. Why would he choose to do it there?

After hearing of the news, Davidson County Sheriff David Grice terminated Athey the same afternoon. He’s worked for the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office for a number of years, left to work for the private military company formerly known as Blackwater, and then returned to the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office.
He not only joined law enforcement, he worked for a defense contractor.
Court documents show Athey was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. He recently married and lived with his wife and her two children.
Was this a scream for help? He had 2 jobs plus a new family. If this was not a man who was willing to risk his life, but change it for the better as well, it would be easy to just pass it off as a good guy gone bad. Taken everything into consideration, now we know there is so much more to this story.

A bank robber, a hero and a tale of healing

A bank robber, a hero and a tale of healing

OCTOBER 28, 2011

Cecile Wehrman Krimm wants to know how and why two brothers could become completely different people.

One brother, Jimmy Krimm, became a notorious serial bank robber who stole from at least 35 banks in a 14-year span. He committed suicide near Fortuna, N.D., just hours after he robbed a bank in Williston.

The other brother, H. Rob Krimm, served his country for 20 years through the U.S. Marines and the U.S. Air Force.

Cecile Wehrman Krimm and Rob Krimm were at the Estevan Public Library on October 22 to promote her true crime novel "The Brothers Krimm: The bank robber and the hero." Wehrman Krimm wrote the book; Rob Krimm and his mother, Charlene, contributed to the story.

Wehrman Krimm first learned of the Krimm family on September 14, 2009. A couple hours after she arrived home from work at the Crosby Journal – where she is the editor – she was told by her mother-in-law that a fugitive bank robber was on the run near Wehrman Krimm's farm after the theft in Williston.

Alleged bank robber took cab to bank with friends

Driver 'furious' about use of taxi by alleged bank robber

By Nok-Noi Ricker
BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine - There was nothing unusual about the three women Ace Taxi owner-operator Yehoshua "Josh" Mizrachi picked up Tuesday morning for a ride to a downtown bank. In fact, the cab driver said the trio were regular customers, and he already had transported them once that morning.

Mizrachi wasn’t even concerned when one of the women, later identified as Matisha Pitts, 25, of Bangor, asked him to park in front of Bangor Savings Bank on State Street while she ran inside at around 9:30 a.m.

"That's not unusual," he said Wednesday morning at a local coffee shop.

He said the first sign of a problem was when "one of her friends gets out of the car and goes and looks for her [Pitts] and when Pitts returns from the bank a minute later she said, 'Let's go.'"

"My little yellow flags went up because she was preparing to leave without her friend," Mizrachi said. "She said, 'Never mind, never mind [about the friend]. Let's go.'"
