LACEY'S SPRING, Ala. - A robbery suspect gave authorities a bit of help when he fled the scene of a noon holdup at People's Bank of North Alabama: He left his personal bankbook.
James Danny Lancaster, 64, of Cullman, was charged with first-degree robbery and remained in Morgan County Jail Tuesday on a $10,000 bond.
Information in the bankbook put investigators on Lancaster's trail. He was arrested less than 90 minutes after the holdup.
When an officer stopped Lancaster's car, police could see money bound by "Peoples Bank" bands inside it, officers said.
Chief Deputy Mike Corley said Lancaster took between $6,000 and $7,000 from a teller. Lancaster allegedly told tellers he had a gun, but he did not brandish a weapon and deputies said they did not find one during the traffic stop.
