Apparently riled up by allegations that Russian hackers interfered with the U.S. presidential election, a man in Miami appears to have forced his Uber driver to broadcast him robbing a bank on Facebook before giving away the cash in South Beach.
Then the would-be Robin Hood, a bald man dressed in a suit and tie, made a bomb threat. The bizarre scene on Ocean Drive ended late Monday with Miami Beach police, Miami-Dade’s bomb squad and agents from the FBI and ATF descending on the party street. Both men were hauled off in U.S. Homeland Security SUVs.
Officials did not confirm much other than saying both men are being questioned by the FBI in connection with the robbery — and that the Facebook stream is part of the investigation.
“A component of this entire investigation as many are aware is social media,” said Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez.
The strange incident occurred just hours after bomb threats disrupted Jewish Community Centers in Miami Beach, Kendall and across the eastern U.S. on Monday.
