He ran out of money from the March 2013 robbery at PNC Ambler Branch. Wore a suit coat with broad shoulders. (PNC cameras didn't capture all these great photos. ) These shots are perfect. It shouldn't take too long! Another for the stupid criminal files.

Just saw the police break down the door of a house on Pulaski Dr. in whitpain and arrest a guy. Neighbors said cops told them it was the bank robber.
