CHICAGO (AP) - The robber's threatening note made a Chicago bank
job easy to solve: The FBI says the suspect wrote it on his pay

An FBI affidavit says the man walked into a Fifth Third Bank on
Friday and handed a teller a note that read "Be Quick Be Quit
(sic). Give your cash or I'll shoot."

The robber got about $400 but left half of his note. Investigators found the other half outside the bank's front doors. Authorities say that part of the man's October pay stub had his name and address.

The suspect was arrested at his Cary home. A judge ordered him
held without bond Monday. If convicted of bank robbery, he faces 20
years in prison.
