A man told police that prayer was his motivation to rob two banks in West Alabama.

Christopher Bruce is accused of robbing the First Financial Bank in Vance and the West Alabama Bank in Woodstock, but when arrested told police that prayer led him to the theft.

Vance police chief Ralph Burnell told Fox 19: "He said he couldn't get a break and he didn't know how he was going to survive.

"He said he even pulled over on the side of the road and prayed about it. He just couldn't find it in himself to do anything different."

Bruce is a convicted criminal and told police that he was finding it difficult to get a legitimate job.

He is being held on outstanding warrants in Bibb County, as well as facing charges for the bank robberies in Vance and Woodstock.
