AMBRIDGE, Pa. (AP) — Police say a bank robbery suspect was nervous when a construction worker saw the suspect throw his shirt in a trash container — but not so harried that he didn't stop to bum a cigarette first.
Acting Ambridge police Chief Sgt. James Mann tells the Beaver County Times (http://bit.ly/GIDJSi ) that 36-year-old Paul Carman gave a Huntingdon Bank teller a note saying, "This is a robbery. No dye packs. No alarms," about 1:30 p.m. Friday.
The construction worker told the newspaper police gave him and others near the bank a description of the robber moments before Carman stopped to discard his shirt and ball cap— which matched the police description — then asked for a cigarette.
Police caught up with Carman, who was also wanted for violating his parole in a 2008 bank robbery, later that day.
