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
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.
