22-year-old Ramsey Fakhouri of Troy, Michigan was in a long-distance relationship with a woman in East St. Louis, Illinois who he'd met in college. And he wanted to propose, but couldn't afford a ring.

Luckily his girlfriend worked at a bank, and he knew how the bank's drive-thru ATMs were stocked.

So this past Valentine's Day, he and a friend drove to the bank in Illinois. And when the manager was restocking the ATMs outside, he ran up with a pellet gun and stole about $26,000. Then they headed back to Michigan.

Unfortunately for him, surveillance cameras got a decent shot of him after the robbery . . . and when the cops sent the photos to the media about a week later, Ramsey's girlfriend recognized him. And she turned him in immediately.

Ramsey was just sentenced to six-and-a-half years in prison.
