The unidentified man was spotted on surveillance video at the bank during the robbery and after exiting the scene he was asked if he’d be interested in offering his opinion on a traffic story to which he accepted. Prior to doing the interview, he requested to take off the same hat that was spotted on the bank camera.
After he has his moment in the sun he decides that he’s not finished and goes on to rob another bank where he hands the teller a note demanding cash stating he has a gun.
Once the traffic story came out, the police noticed the man getting interviewed and believed he was the robber. From there, they contacted the news reporter and requested the man’s information which he had given to her.
Shortly after they were able to go to the suspect’s home and arrest him
