Man Stages Robbery to Get Back in Prison

SOUTH DAYTONA, Fla. (AP) -- Danny Robert Villegas liked prison so much he staged a robbery just to get back in, police say. Officers were called to the Kennedy Space Center Federal Credit Union on Monday after Villegas allegedly walked inside, told the teller he was robbing her and said, "You might as well call the police now," according to a police report.

Police Lt. Ron Wright said Villegas then sat on a couch in the bank lobby to wait for police.

"He said he wanted to rob a federal bank because he wanted to go back to a federal penitentiary," Wright said. "Apparently he robbed a bank in Fresno, California, 10 years ago, was sentenced to 70 months in a federal penitentiary in Phoenix and he enjoyed his time there."

Villegas told police he was a roofer in Texas for five years after he was released from prison, but had grown tired of the work, The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported.

"Two days ago he said he decided to drive to Florida because he wanted to see the ocean," Wright said. "But he ran out of money."
