Meet Blaise James Balczak. He’s accused of robbing a Chase bank branch in Grand Rapids, MI, Monday, making off with more than $3,000. Where did he ever get the idea to rob a bank?

Balczak admitted to robbing the bank, according to the FBI agent, and told authorities that he came up with the idea while was watching a show like “48 Hours.”

The FBI tracked Balczak back to his home not far from the branch. He will soon have less time to watch “48 Hours.”
