Ind. Bank Robber Forgets Checkbook During Heist

The Associated Press

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- Investigators did not need DNA or even fingerprints to track down a bank robbery suspect -- he left his checkbook on the teller's counter.

A man walked into a First Federal Savings Bank branch Tuesday carrying a McDonald's bag and demanded money from a teller, witnesses said.

He walked out of the bank just east of the city's downtown with some cash, but left his checkbook behind. The checks were printed with Larry Heady's name and his Maceo, Ky., address, police said.

Police officers on Wednesday arrested Heady, 63, at his home in the town about 30 miles southeast of Evansville.

"Usually with suspects there's a general rule that you don't leave identification behind," police Sgt. Brett Fitzsimmons said.

Heady was also a suspect in two bank robberies in Henderson, Ky., and another in Hopkinsville, Ky., police said.
