Man yells ‘Go Cards’ during bank robbery

ST. LOUIS – October only means one thing to most people in St. Louis: Cardinals playoffs baseball. And apparently that applies if you’re a criminal trying to elude authorities.

A man is at-large after robbing a bank in the small town of Arnold, Mo., roughly 20 miles south of Busch Stadium, on Friday afternoon.

According to reports, a bearded man entered a First Bank branch and presented a note demanding money.

A weapon was never shown. But after taking an undisclosed amount, the man reportedly yelled, “Go Cards!” and left the facility.

CrimeStoppers (866-371-TIPS) is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to a felony arrest.

The Cardinals, who won their 11th World Series title last season, lead the San Francisco Giants 3-2 in the best-of-7 National League Championship Series. Game 6 is scheduled for Sunday night at AT&T Park.
