Court records state that Slater robbed $15,000 from the Bank of Maine branch in Hallowell after handing a bank employee a note that read:

‘Im Here to Rob your Bank, no silent Alarms my cell phone rings, your all dead, I have a hand grenade, and a gun, no marked bills, or inked, if so, one day I will come back and kill all of you, do you understand.???’
