Suspected bank robber found on bus bench -- a block away from bank
A bank robbery suspect was arrested this week in San Diego -- sitting on a bus bench a block away from one of the banks he is suspected of robbing a day earlier.
Thomas Roy Amado, 49, was arrested on suspicion of robbing a Chase Bank branch and a Comerica Bank branch in a 15-minute spree on Wednesday. He was sitting a block away from the Comerica branch when he was arrested Thursday.
Police say an officer on the beat spotted him and noticed he fit the robbery suspect's description: bushy white hair, about 50 years old, wearing black pants and a black polo shirt with a red logo on the pocket, and carrying a white plastic bag.
