Fla. man's cell phone photos lead to bank robbery arrest
A Florida man suspected of a bank robbery got into hot water when police found photographs on his mobile phone depicting him holding a large amount of cash and wearing a mask seen on security footage during the robbery, according to this report:
Detectives said surveillance photos placed him in the bank the day before when he asked to open an account but left because he did not have ID. He was located driving his mom's 2001 gold Chrysler Concorde -- a vehicle like the one used in the robbery. When he was stopped, he tried to run away but was caught and found to be in possession of marijuana.
?When detectives searched the Chrysler Concorde and Mitchell's cell phone, they located photos of Mitchell wearing a brown ski mask matching the same mask that was worn during the robbery, and a photo of Mitchell holding a large amount of cash," the sheriff's office said.
