“During the course of the investigation, we learned he came here from New Orleans on a bus with the sole intent to rob a bank in the Panama City area,” said Panama City, Fla., Police Sgt. John Moore. James Alexander, 38, apparently chose the area because he had been there before on Spring Break. And Alexander was prepared: before he took a taxi to the bank (and had the cabbie wait), he did his research: “He looked up on Google how to rob a bank,” Moore says.
