Holdup note on check leads to arrest
Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY - When robbing a bank, it may not be the smartest move to write the holdup note on a personal check. That's what led them to arrest two people here, police said.

Witnesses told police a man and a woman walked into a bank and handed a teller a note saying they had a gun and wanted money. The note was scrawled on the back of a personal check.

The robbers left the bank with $1,300.

Witnesses wrote down the license plate number of the getaway car.

Police said the name on the registration matched the name on the personal check used for the holdup note.

After they were arrested, the suspects allegedly told police they wanted the money to pay a drug debt and buy clothes and cell phones.

They certainly weren't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Dumb crook files material.
Almost as dumb as the motorcyclist who robbed the bank and they got him a few hours later. He was clueless as how he got caught that fast.
His names was on top of his helmet. Bonehead!
