Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Rob a Bank, Grab a Taco, Get Nabbed!
There's an opening line bandied around by reporters as one of the best openers in history, something along the line of "[Some criminal] died hungry," a story that dealt with a robber getting killed in the process of robbing a restaurant--or something like that. The following story is the opposite of that. From New Hampshire:
A local man out on parole is back behind bars tonight after allegedly robbing the TD Bank at 1255 S. Willow St. and grabbing a quick snack at Taco Bell.
The bank alarm was sounded about 2:15 p.m. after a man entered the bank and handed the teller a note demanding cash. The man then fled the bank with the money and disappeared just before police arrived at the scene.
Checking with local taxi companies, police learned of a cab that had taken a man from the area of the bank to Taco Bell, but by the time police arrived at the restaurant, the suspect had left.
According to Manchester police, witnesses described a suspicious man inside the restaurant flashing a large amount of cash before calling a cab. Police learned of a man offering extra money for an expeditious ride to Home Depot.
