A BANK robber was convinced by staff to sit down and arrange a loan to help his financial problems.

Mark Smith, 59, allegedly told bank workers in Watsonville California, that he had a bomb in his backpack and that he would detonate it inside the building unless he was given $2000.

But instead, Mr Smith was convinced by the bank manager to take a loan from the branch to solve his cash flow problems.

While Mr Smith waited patiently for the her to retrieve loan paperwork, the manager simply called emergency services.

Police arrested Mr Smith on suspicion of attempted robbery, as well as charges of making a false bomb report.
