Cops say bank robber left his wallet at the scene

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Police didn’t have to dust for fingerprints to find this suspect – they just rifled through the wallet he left behind at the scene.

Albert Vincent Perkins is charged with robbing First Federal Bank in Kansas City on Thursday.

Police say he walked into the bank, handed the teller a plastic bag and ordered her to give him all of the $100 bills.

Then he walked out of the bank – but left his wallet sitting on the counter.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says the teller and a customer in the bank identified the photo on the driver’s license and another photo in the wallet as the bank robber.

Perkins was arrested Thursday night. Police say he took about $3,100.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
