A 73-year-old man who robbed a bank in Illinois, saying he only had six months to live, was charged Monday and could spend the rest of his life behind bars, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Walter Unbehaun, of Rock Hill, N.C., was arrested by FBI agents and local police outside of a hotel in North Chicago Sunday, a day after the bank robbery.

The Tribune wrote that Unbehaun is accused of walking into a bank with a silver gun tucked into his waistband and demanding money from a teller.

“This is a hold up. I have nothing to lose,” he said, according to the teller.

Unbehaun left with $4,178 in cash, the Tribune reported.
