Suspected bank robber caught hiding in doughnut shop
SEATTLE -- In our continuing coverage of crime that's making this reporter crave a pastry, a suspected bank robber was captured Tuesday morning while hiding in a Capitol Hill doughnut shop.
According to the Seattle Police Department, a man wearing a red bandanna robbed the Wells Fargo bank in the 400 block of Broadway Avenue East around 9:40 a.m. Witnesses told arriving officers the suspect walked off following the robbery.
The suspect reportedly tried to hide in a nearby Top Pot Doughnuts, where he asked employees -- who thought he was acting odd -- to order him a cab.
Officers -- showing no concern over potential cop/doughnut jokes like this one -- wasted no time getting to Top Pot and arrested the suspect, who was booked into King County Jail for investigation of robbery. Hopefully, they got some doughnuts out of the deal, as well.
