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.
