Bank Robber makes pit stop at TV station

Posted by Paige Bresky --email

TAMPA, FL (WFLX) - A Tampa TV station finds itself not only covering the news, but in the middle of it.

That's because, before a crook robbed a bank, he stopped at the station to complain about a story they previously aired.

The man was caught on surveillance at the TV station lobby at around 3 p.m. Friday. Just 20 minutes later, he is seen on surveillance camera robbing a bank.

The receptionist at the station recognized the man and helped people track him down.

The suspect is facing armed felony robbery charges.
