It happened around one Tuesday afternoon. Police say Silva walked into the Park Community Credit Union on New Circle handed a the teller a note that asked for the money and implied he had a weapon.

Silva got the money and probably something a little unexpected when as he tried to run away a dye packet exploded in the money.

Witnesses say a trail of red dye mist followed the man as he ran. He was also seen shedding clothes as he crossed the street to Diva's Gentleman's Club.

As he came to the door of the club he was arrested and charged with the bank robbery.
