Bank robbery suspect says he gave stolen money to the poor

Feb 13, 2013 - The Associated Press

JACKSON -- When it came to raising money for the unfortunate, accused bank robber Corey Allan Donaldson said he wanted to think outside the box.

The 39-year-old Australian was three days away from surrendering to police when Clinton, Utah, cops arrested him on a bank robbery charge, he said Monday. His goal had been to raise awareness about the plight of the homeless, he said.

During the month between New Year's Eve, when he said he stole $140,750 from the U.S. Bank in Jackson, and his Jan. 22 arrest, Donaldson said he traveled the West giving the money to people he found living in shelters and on the streets.
