Horrible Weapon Used in Bank Robbery Attempt

I'd usually have some sort of smart-ass remark for a story like this.

From Syracuse.com:

Utica police tell local media outlets that Lawrence Deptola went into city bank Thursday afternoon and threatened a teller with the [toilet] plunger.

Police responded after two other banks had previously called authorities about a suspicious man entering their buildings.

Deptola was arrested after a foot chase and charged with attempted third-degree robbery.

I'm familiar with the Utica area, and some of the denizens are a little odd, I but have absolutely no idea what this guy was thinking.
