Man nabbed for robbing same bank in 24 hours

A robber held up the same bank in Hamburg, Germany twice within 24 hours just a week after being released from jail -- for the same crime.

The 50-year-old man went into a savings bank, brandished a pistol and said, "I was here yesterday, and I want money again today!"

The repeat offender made off with 450 euros ($600) but with the help of video surveillance cameras, police were able to detain him three hours later. They said he had been in jail for robbing banks in Hamburg in 2002 and 2004.
