“I left a message with my girlfriend’s sister and I told her, ‘Yeah, I’ve got into the city, I’ve got myself a room at The Bowery Hotel, I filed for Social Security, I robbed the bank and I went to the drugstore,’” the 61-year-old told The Post in an exclusive interview at the Manhattan Detention Complex on Sunday. “I told them, but they just didn’t pay any attention to the ‘robbed the bank’ part.”
Gibbons said that he had to work up the courage to do his New Year’s Eve holdup, which he filmed for what he called an art project.
“But to be honest, I stood outside the bank talking into the camera for quite a while … going over the different reasons to do it and not to do it,” he said. “The police detective told me that they had me on film outside the bank for quite a while … that’s probably why the [camera] battery started going dead during the actual robbery.”
