Seminole, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Michael Prance, a 53-year-old homeless man in Seminole, Florida has been arrested after he was caught redhanded-- literally-- following a bank robbery.
Police claim Prance is the culprit from a RBC Bank robbery that took place at approximately 1:52pm last Thursday. The authorities combed the surrounding area immediately after, but it was soon determined that the suspect had escaped (and with an unspecified amount of cash.) At 6pm, residents of the town's Caribbean Mobile Home Park called 911 to report a drunk and disorderly interview in the pool area of the park.
According a press release from the Seminole Police Department, "The witness reported that the subject who was stumbling around the pool area, was carrying a bottle of wine and had a red substance on him that resembled dye. When the suspect was approached, he became belligerent towards the complainant. The complainant asked him to leave and the suspect eventually did so."
Prance was arrested almost 90 minutes later outside the Seminole Subs restaurant, after a bus driver called police to report a belligerent passenger. Police claim they found Prance to be in possession of the black satchel the bank robbery suspect had used to store his loot, which was now irreparably stained with red dye, along with all of the missing money. He has been charged with bank robbery and disorderly intoxication.
