Buy dinner…do laundry…rob a bank..westies-h

Kevin Patrick Smith, a Westies gang associate who once did ten years for bank robbery, was arrested on July 1 outside his upper east side apartment building as he headed out to rob a bank in New Paltz, NY.   The cash-strapped New Yorker needed money to pay his legal debts and other bills.

After his arrest, cops found a to-do list with the words “rob a bank” written on it in Smith’s apartment.

Well-organized, but not discreet.. Sometimes it pays NOT to write everything down.

    But here’s my question: what paper did he write his note on? I mean, did he use the Rhodia pads for this purpose, or did he chose a different, lesser quality paper?

    I wonder.

    Amit, I can only hope it was a competitor!
