DALLAS (AP) — An unarmed Dallas firefighter has been accused of robbing a bank, apologizing and slipping the teller a $20 tip from the loot.

Federal prosecutors on Wednesday announced the arrest of 37-year-old Jesus Ventura of Irving on a bank robbery charge.

A Chase Bank branch in Dallas was held up Tuesday.

Ventura allegedly demanded money and apologized as the teller put cash into his backpack. Prosecutors say Ventura then took a $20 bill from the funds, gave it to the teller and said, “Here is a tip for you.”

Dallas police arrested Ventura later Tuesday as he allegedly tried to rob a nearby business.

Officers recovered the bank money. Police did not say how much was stolen.

Dallas-Fire Rescue Lt. Joel Lavender says Ventura has been put on paid administrative leave.
