What would you do if you weren’t feeling well and didn’t have health care? A man in Portland, Ore. turned to crime.

A report from KIMA TV’s website, has the story of Tim Alsip who went into a bank, handed the teller a note saying that he was robbing the bank for $1 and then proceeded to wait for police.

The report doesn’t state what Alsip’s medical needs currently are, but deputies found him waiting in the lobby when they arrive.

This isn’t the first time a man in his 50′s has robbed a bank for $1 in order to go to jail to get free health care. An ABC News story from 2011 tells of 59-year-old James Verone who robbed a North Carolina bank for $1 in order to get medical care to treat several different medical conditions.
