21-year-old bank robber Byron Jacovin Garrett was arrested just a few minutes after robbing a bank in Nacogdoches, Texas, on Tuesday morning. The police recovered all of the money stolen, except for one dollar, which Garrett placed in a Salvation Army kettle while attempting to make his getaway.

According to bank manager Tommy Ellison, the robber handed him a note that said he needed money but didn't want to hurt anybody. The alarm was activated within minutes.

Ellison said that upon recovery of the money, the bank decided to let the Salvation Army keep the stolen dollar.
