the pay stub that gives rewards

On Friday, a Chicago man entered a Fifth Third Bank branch and handed the teller a note. It said, "Be Quick and Be Quit (he apparently did not know how to spell Quiet). Give your cash or I'll shoot."

The teller complied and the man got away with $400. Unfortunately for him, he left his demand-note behind. It was on a half-slip of paper. He also dropped the other half of the paper outside the bank as he fled.

Together, the two pieces of paper made one important whole. The man had written his demand on the back of his pay-stub, which had his complete name and address.

The police arrested him on Monday. He faces a possible 20 years in prison.
