A 49-year-old man sporting his school’s mascot allegedly robbed a Madison, Wis., credit union last week, telling police he did so because of crushing student debt.Randall Hubatch allegedly tried to steal $500 from Summit Credit Union last week, saying he had $250,000 in student loan debt and couldn’t afford to pay it back on his own, the Wisconsin State Journal reported Saturday.
Hubatch earned an English degree from UW — Madison in 1998 and then got a law degree from the school in 2004, according to the State Journal.
In a show of school pride, Hubatch, who now works as a custodian at the university, was wearing a three-dimensional Bucky Badger hat the day of the heist, according to the Journal.
Hubatch, who told police he is “slightly autistic,” allegedly held up the credit union using a plastic Star Wars toy gun.
“If the district attorney agrees to send me to prison for a long time, then I will confess and plead guilty,” Hubatch told police after his arrest, according to the Journal. “Otherwise, I have nothing else to say, and if released I will do it again.”
