FBI: Bank robber made small-talk during hold-ups

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Federal agents say a convicted bank robber who held up two more banks in the Grand Rapids area made small talk with tellers as he was waiting for their money.

Michael Winbush, 53, is now being held for November robberies in Grand Rapids and Wyoming. He has a prior conviction for a Flint-area bank robbery.

In court documents, an FBI agent says Winbush talked to a teller about her Thanksgiving holiday as he was robbing a credit on South Division in Grand Rapids on November 27.

The agent says three days later, he apologized to a teller as he robbed her bank on 44th Street in Wyoming.

School holds Right to Life event
