A regular customer at a San Francisco bank was arrested after he allegedly robbed the branch and left his ATM card behind, police said today.

Daudet Muimpe, 33, walked into the Bank of America at 500 Battery St. about 3:45 p.m. Monday and asked a teller for help with his ATM card, authorities said.

As the teller was placing bills in her money drawer, the robber reached over the counter, grabbed some cash and ran, police said.

The problem was, Muimpe had been in the bank before, and the teller recognized him, authorities said.

Investigators also had no problems identifying him because he left the ATM card behind, police said. Officers arrested him shortly after the holdup.

    I once worked with this older lady who absolutely hated everything about the government. I finally found out his 40-year-old son was a drug addict who had robbed four banks in one day. He had literally walked from bank to bank handing them notes and robbing them before he was caught almost immediately after. Happens everyday we just don’t hear about it.
