bank robber leaves a check

This week, a man entered a Bank of America branch in Ocala, Florida and handed a teller a note that said he had a .45 caliber gun and demanded money.

The teller complied with his demands.

A few hours later the same man entered a second bank, handed the teller a similar note and escaped by use of a taxi.

The police promptly arrested 33-year-old Patrick Johnson.

How did they arrest him so quickly? How do they know he was the thief?

First, they found Patrick in the back of the taxi.

And -- oh yes, the notes he passed to the teller were written on the backs of his own personal checks.

memo to Patrick: purchase a notepad.
