A 65-year-old man was arrested on a $10,000 bond for looting the Academy Bank in Colorado Springs and throwing fistfuls of cash into the air while shouting "Merry Christmas."

The suspect, David Oliver then sat in the Starbucks coffee shop next door and waited for the police. He was arrested without conflict, police said. "It was almost like he wanted it to happen," an eyewitness told 11 News.

The police said even after the bystanders picked the money and returned it to the bank, thousands of dollars are still missing, Fox 31 Denver reported.

Witnesses said instead of getting away with the looted cash, he decided to share the money with passers-by outside.

“He started throwing money out of the bag and then said, ‘Merry Christmas!'” 11 News quoted Dion Pascale as saying.

Twitter users, however, sympathized with the old man. One person wrote, "He comes in many forms. Merry Christmas Dave" while the other tweeted, "Please take it easy on him. This is one of the good people."

The "older white male" allegedly walked into the bank around 12:27 p.m. Monday to rob it, claiming to have a weapon in his pocket. After threatening people, he collected an undisclosed amount of cash and left.

Although the police revealed that Oliver wasn't armed with a weapon in the heist, he is being held in the El Paso County jail and is set to appear in court Thursday.
