Kenosha Man Appears in Court after Trying to Rob Bank with Bomb
The Kenosha man suspected of trying to rob a bank with a bomb threat waived his right to a preliminary hearing.
Brian Thielen appeared in a Kenosha court room on Tuesday morning.
He apparently suffers from hearing loss and used an aid device to help him understand the proceedings.
Thielen is charged with attempted robbery of a bank and bomb scare.
According to the complaint, Thielen told police someone else told him to rob the Johnson Bank on Friday.
He told workers in a note that the man was watching the building.
Thielen demanded one million dollars and threatened to set off a bomb.
He was arrested a few hours later.
