MIDWEST CITY -

Midwest City Police say the man they arrested for trying to rob IBC Bank told them he was up for four days using methamphetamine prior to the incident.

Christopher Fulton was arrested Friday, one day after the attempted robbery at IBC Bank on N. Air Depot Blvd in Midwest City.

According to court documents, on Thursday Fulton entered the bank and handed the teller a personal check with the personal information scribbled out and a threatening note written on it. The note read "You know what to do or we all die, I will shoot you first $500 $100 $50 $20 $10".

Police say Fulton thought the bank had triggered the hold up alarm and ran from the bank. He climbed into a black sports car and left the scene.

The next day, the FBI contacted Midwest City Police and said Fulton was confessing to the crime. According to the report, Fulton said he saw the robbery suspect's picture in the newspaper and it looked like him.

Police say he told them he thought it was his body in the bank, but not his mind. He then told police that he was up for four days and using methamphetamine.

Fulton told police he stole the check from his mother. He also said a friend owed someone $1,400 for two ounces of methamphetamine and that his girlfriend influenced him to commit the crime. According to Fulton, the plan was to rob the bank to get the money to pay back the debt.

He told police that he chose IBC Bank because he had previously banked there.

He was booked into the Midwest City Jail on robbery charges.
