Thinking of robbing a bank with the aid of a sex toy? Thinking you're sooooo original for the idea, like no one has ever done it before? Think again! Aaron Stein hath beat you to the punch.

A bomb squad blew up a briefcase and other suspicious items in a Pittsburgh man's car Monday after he robbed a bank, police said. With a sex toy. Specifically, a vibrator. Aaron Stein, 35, faces a preliminary hearing June 25 in Allegheny County Magisterial District Court on nine felony counts including aggravated assault, robbery, threatening to use a weapon of mass destruction and the unusual charge of possessing a facsimile weapon of mass destruction, according to court documents. That last one would be the vibrator...Officers found money in a garbage bag, and beneath the front passenger seat, they found the device Stein is accused of having used in the bank robbery — "a makeshift box he made out of a box, black tape, vibrator and cellphone," Sumpter said. A bomb squad dog checked the device and a briefcase that officers found in the car. Both were detonated as a precaution, police said.
