Kathe Nacey: Granny Threatens to Blow Up Every Wells Fargo in the U.S. Over ATM Snafu
Kathleen Nacey got bomb-level mad.
The older we get, the more we start to sympathize with people like Kathe Nacey.
On Saturday, Willis cops were told that the 62-year-old had just stormed into a Wells Fargo bank in a rage. Apparently, Nacey's ATM card was not working at the Pulse machine outside. Maybe there was something wrong with the strip, or maybe the bank had not credited her account with a much-needed deposit. We're kind of betting on the latter.
At any rate, Nacey's inablity to get her hands on her green sent her into a blood-red fury, one that culminated in Nacey allegedly threatening to blow up not just that particular Wells Fargo, but also "all the other Wells Fargos."
In case you were wondering, there are 6,335 Wells Fargo branch banks in America. Where banks and technology intersect, anger is often the result.
While that just sounds like a ridiculous outburst from a cranky old lady to us, employees of the bank called in Nacey's threat to Willis cops, who took the threat very, very seriously. They even brought in the feds.
Nacey was sitting on one of the planters outside the bank when authorities arrived, and surprise, surprise: Agents and a bomb dog from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms found no evidence of explosives in the bank, in Nacey's truck or on her person.
Nevertheless, Nacey was charged with making a terroristic threat and hauled off to Montgomery County Jail. Her bond was set at $23,000.
