Maybe he only read the second part of the sign.

This morning, police say a man robbed a blood bank in the 5000 block of Delmar Boulevard. KDSK.com reports that the man, described as a black male in his late teens or early 20s, walked in to the blood bank at around 9:30 this morning brandishing a gun.

His stickup, the report says, netted him several hundred dollars and no one was harmed.

No word on whether he took any inventory, or if he was particularly shiny.
