Poor penmanship is not a crime, but it landed a man in jail for attempted bank robbery.

Police say 29-year-old Jamal Garrett entered the Wells Fargo Bank in the 2600 block of Somerville Road in Antioch and handed the teller a note.

Police said the teller was unable to read the note due to poor handwriting. When she called her manager for help, they say, Garrett slipped out the back door.

Police found him soon after. He was arrested for attempted bank robbery and outstanding parole violations.
