SATELITTE BEACH, FLA. — A Charlotte-area man in Florida for a Disney cruise ended up in jail instead of on the vacation, WFTV is reporting.

Investigators said Cedrick Swinson, 37, robbed a credit union in Satellite Beach after realizing he didn’t have enough money for the trip.

Swinson’s girlfriend and their two children were in the car during the robbery.

Police said the girlfriend had no idea what was happening. She told investigators she joked with him after he quickly came out of the bank.

Police said she asked him, “What did you do, rob a bank?”

Investigators said when he realized he didn’t have access to his own funds he decided to steal the money to get his girlfriend’s children on the Disney cruise.

Police said Swinson slipped the teller a note demanding money.  Within minutes, police said they pulled his SUV over, arrested him and recovered the money.
