A would-be bank robber left with a polite "thank you" after a teller told him she didn't have any money in her drawer.
 
North Charleston, South Carolina police said Melvin Jesse Blain, 31, visited a Wachovia Bank branch and passed a note to the teller saying he was robbing the bank and asking for $30,000.  After the teller told Blain she had no money in her drawer, he said "thank you" and walked out empty-handed.
 
Blain, who was arrested a short distance from the bank, explained his behavior to police by indicating that he had just finished a nearly four-year prison sentence for bank robbery and didn't want to go back.  Blain was charged with entering a bank with intent to steal.
