Robbery suspect sought ‘loony bin’ spot

A man accused of robbing a downtown Spokane bank told police he didn't have a place to stay and wanted to return to a mental hospital, according to court documents.

Donnie Wayne Snow, Jr., 45, was arrested Friday after a robbery at Banner Bank, 508 W. 3rd Ave., about 5:23 p.m.

Employees said he entered the bank and said “Hey ladies, I'm here to rob your bank. Give me all your money,” Spokane police allege. He left with $1,684 - police noted in court documents the presence of two $2 bills - and was arrested a short while later near 3rd and Lincoln.

Police say Snow told them “I did it because I need a place to stay and want to go back to the loony bin.”

Snow is in jail on $20,000 bond after appearing in Superior Court Monday on a first-degree robbery charge.
