Investigators quickly identified him as the key suspect in Friday's robbery at a Wells Fargo Bank in Sun Valley partly because a bank teller said he had been in the bank the day before and showed his photo ID while inquiring about opening a new account.


Federal prosecutors say he made off with $10,000 after he appeared to be concealing a weapon his pocket and handed a note to a teller that read, "Give me $10,000 and no one gets hurt."
