A man who robbed a Springfield bank was caught after not covering his tracks.
Police say Wyman Allen robbed the United Community Bank on north Bruns Lane by putting a note on the counter, saying “give me the money or I’ll kill you,” while reaching into his pocket as though he had a weapon. He ran away on foot.
Police dogs found his coat with money in it outside the Walgreens at Jefferson and Bruns, and they found Allen inside the store. He was taken into custody without incident, and no weapon has been found.
