According to police in Honolulu in January, it was Ellis Cleveland who robbed four banks within a five-day span,so when police put this to 'Brains' Cleveland at the time of his arrest, he declared, "Four. I didn't do four. I only robbed three banks. But it doesn't matter because I'm not talking to you guys. I want a lawyer." Police later said that Cleveland was not counting the attempted robbery on Dec. 31 of the Bank of Hawaii because, after three different tellers tried unsuccessfully to decipher his holdup note, Cleveland gave up and walked out empty-handed.
