A suspected bank robber left his wallet and identification at the scene of the crime, making it easy for police to track him down.
Terrell Green, 26, was charged with the Wednesday robbery of the Trustmark Bank in Columbus, Massachusetts.
Police Lt. Tom Thompson said a man walked into the bank and handed the teller a note from his wallet demanding money. He handed the teller a white pillowcase into which she placed more than $1000 (euro800) worth of cash, Thompson said, The Commercial Dispatch reported.
Police set up checkpoints to search for the suspect but had to look no further than the bank counter, where the suspect's wallet was found with his identification inside.
Following information from the wallet, Thompson said investigators went to the suspect's mother's home and arrested Green as he was walking out the front door.
