Alleged Bank Robber Leaves Her Photo ID

(AP) A would-be bank robber came away empty-handed, but left behind something useful for police _ her photo identification. Police Commissioner William Dwyer said the woman was arrested on an attempted armed robbery charge less than an hour later.

Dwyer told The Detroit News that the woman filled out an account application Thursday morning, then pulled a handgun and demanded cash. But she panicked and fled without getting any money. Police found an address on the account application, along with her photo ID.

The address was for an apartment near the bank. The manager gave her new address to police, who arrested her without incident.

Police had no records Thursday indicating whether the woman had an attorney.
