KANSAS CITY — A man was arrested over the weekend trying to break into the Federal Reserve Bank in Kansas City — with a screwdriver.
Police said 22-year-old Brandon L. Hiser climbed over a 6-foot wrought-iron fence early Sunday morning and then crawled under a second fence to get to a secured area. He used a screwdriver to pry open a security keypad off a wall and use the wires inside to open a door.
When that didn't work, police said he went to another door and tried to pry it open.
Meanwhile, Federal Reserve officers were watching the burglary attempt on security cameras, and Hiser was arrested after he slid under a security gate to escape.
Hiser is charged with city ordinance violations of trespassing and property damage. Police say he was intoxicated.
