Va. bank robber stuck around in parking lot after robbery, allowing police to make easy arrest

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Police in Virginia say a man who robbed a bank in Fairfax County was still standing around in the parking lot with his loot when officers arrived.

The Washington Post reported that twenty-nine-year-old Makele G. Habtom was arrested and charged with robbery on Thursday. Habtom allegedly walked into a BB&T bank branch bank, demanded money, and walked out with an undisclosed sum.

Police arrived three minutes later and found the unarmed suspect in the parking lot. They could not explain why the man stuck around.
