YUMA, Ariz. — Arizona authorities say they arrested a man who robbed a Yuma bank then went and spent some of the stolen money on beer and pizza at a close-by pizza parlor.
Yuma police say 56-year-old Henry Elmer has been booked into county jail on a variety of robbery and theft-related charges.
Officers responded to a robbery call at the main branch of the Wells Fargo Bank across from the Yuma Police Station around 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
A man reportedly entered the bank, produced a box-cutter knife and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Police say Elmer then went to a nearby restaurant, ordered beer and a couple of slices of pizza and paid with some of the bank's money.
Police say they located Elmer before the meal was served. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer, yet, but the odds are not good.
