This Ohio bank robbery suspect was much more alert than the police officers who were dutifully searching him as he was face down on the hood of a car. So how did he get rid of what was likely the note he used when he allegedly robbed a bank? He ate it! Check it out:
As reported at Ohio.com:
Twinsburg police Patrolman Daniel Biada said a dash cam video of Thursday’s arrest of John H. Ford, 35, of Cleveland, shows Ford gobbling a piece of paper while officers searched his pockets.
”As we’re searching him, officers are removing items and throwing them on the cruiser [hood],” Biada said. ”We’re searching him for weapons. We’re not looking at his head.”
Twinsburg police reviewed the images captured on camera and said they observed Ford leaning over to eat something off the hood of the cruiser.
”He grabbed it in his mouth, just like Pacman,” Biada said. ”He just ate it right there.”
Notwithstanding his quick thinking, it’s not looking too good for Pacman.
Authorities said they found a .38-caliber pistol on the driver’s side floor of Ford’s car and a wad of cash covered in red ink on the passenger side of the vehicle.
Ford is also a suspect in bank robberies in Stow and Akron.
Suggestion: Don’t hold Mr. Ford anywhere near the evidence room.
