Michigan police ID woman they say used spaghetti sauce to rob bank

Police have identified a 430-pound woman they say pretended two cans of spaghetti sauce were a bomb when she robbed a southeast Michigan bank.

Police say 53-year-old Ophelia A. Neal faces bank robbery and explosives charges in Saturday's robbery at a Fifth Third Bank branch in Macomb County's Clinton Township. It's about 15 miles north-northeast of Detroit.

WDIV-TV says police are hunting for the parole absconder. The Michigan Department of Corrections say Neal is black, 5-foot-7 and has partially gray hair.

The state says she has fraud, assault and marijuana convictions.

Police say the robber told bank employees she had a bomb in her cloth bag and demanded money. They say she took an undisclosed amount of money and escaped in a car with a man at the wheel.
