Lufkin Police are invesitgating a bizzare situation that happened at the Super 6 motel, late Wednesday night.

Employees reported an unidentified man slid a piece of paper through the night service window that stated, "This is a hold up give me the money." 

The employees said the man did not display a weapon or threaten them.

After reading the note, an employee handed it back to the man. When the man got the note back, he said "just kidding," and walked away.

The employees described the man as a “real dirty”, heavy-set and white with a beard and dirty-blonde or reddish hair.

Responding officers did not locate the man.

Reminds me of the show, Tombstone, where Ringo faces off with Doc Holliday.

Ringo, when prompted by Doc about the last dustup they had, said, "I was just funning".

And Doc replied, "I wasn't."

So this character says, "This is a hold up give me the money" and when the teller didn't look afraid, says, "just kidding'. Well this is Texas and passing that note is a good way to die or be jailed.

We don't kid about such things here in Texas.
