A New Castle man’s lack of penmanship skills may have cost him a big score, according to police.

On Saturday around 2:50 p.m., police say Thomas Love, 40, entered the WSFS Bank in the Crossroads Shopping Center in New Castle.

Roads allegedly approached the bank teller and presented a demand note written on a deposit slip.

Police say the teller couldn’t understand what Love had written, handed it back to him and asked him to rewrite it. Love then fled the bank empty-handed.

Delaware State Troopers and New Castle County Police soon arrived at the scene where they received a description of the suspect.

An officer soon located Love near New Castle Avenue and Rodney Drive and took him into custody. No one was injured during the incident.

Love is charged with attempted robbery and was committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution on $2000 cash bond.
