An Ohio man was arrested after allegedly using a note with his name and address on it during a bank robbery.
Michael Harrell walked into a U.S Bank in Cleveland on Monday and passed a demand note to a teller, the FBI said.
The note said, “This is a robbery. Don’t get nobody hurt."
However, the note was written on a form Harrell had used at the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles which had his name and address on it.
The teller complied and handed over $206 before calling the police.
Making things even easier for investigators: Harrell made no attempt to hide his face and frequently came to the bank.
“We’ve had individuals drop things on the way out the door that they didn’t intend to obviously. We’ve had individuals drop cell phones that have all their identifying information in it,” Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia, spokeswoman for the Cleveland Division of Police told WJW.
“When you present a note that has your name already on it and address, it helps law enforcement tremendously.”
