(KFTK) - A Colorado man has been arrested for spreading holiday cheer - after stealing it from a bank, that is.

Police say after 65-year-old David Oliver robbed a Colorado Springs bank, he walked outside and began throwing money while shouting "Merry Christmas."

Oliver then allegedly walked into a nearby coffee shop, sat down, and waited for the cops to arrive.

Unfortunately for Oliver, robbing a bank gets you arrested even if you give away the money.  Cops took him away, while passersby picked up the cash and returned it to the bank.
