A man in behind bars after robbing a bank and heading to the bar for a quick drink.

This happened in Warren Wednesday afternoon at the TCF Bank on East Ten Mile Road. 

Police have charged 54-year-old Dennis Grantham for bank robbery. 

They say he handed the teller a note demanding cash. He then walked a block away to the Ryan Tavern. 

While police were looking for Grantham  they say he was inside drinking a beer.

"There was no conversation, there was no confrontation at all, it was just a matter of fact 'here you are, let's go to jail'," says Matthew Nichols with the Warren Police Department. 

Police also recovered the nearly $300 that was taken from the bank. 

Grantham has six prior felony convictions. His bonds been set at $500,000.
