Port Orange [Florida] Man Robs Bank, Calls Taxi for Get Away


Douglas Unger, 32, has been charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault after he allegedly robbed a Port Orange Seacoast Bank, and then tried to leave in a cab… that needed to stop for gas.

Police say Unger walked into the bank wearing two pairs of sunglasses, produced a gun, placed a small bag on the counter, and ordered the teller to give him all the money. He then left the building and got into a waiting Yellow cab he had arranged to have pick him up and take him to Orlando International Airport.

When Unger got in the cab the driver let him know they needed to stop for fuel at the nearby Circle K, and that’s where a Port Orange police officer responding to the robbery call noticed them. The officer stopped the vehicle and found Unger in possession of a firearm and the stolen cash. Unger is being held without bail at the Volusia County Branch Jail.
