But police say the unemployed Finnigan Howland left with enough money to pay rent Lincoln luxury sedan and driver.

He was arrested two days after the robbery, when police found him ready to go to an appointment with his driver hired.

Howland Police Chief Paul Monroe said the department was inundated with advice within 48 hours of a bank robbery at the branch of First Bank Place East Market Street in Howland Plaza.

Police and a teller at the bank said it escaped with 3,000 and after passing a note saying he had a gun and”Do you need money to feed the children, give me your money!”

”After questioning Mr. Finnigan was found not to have children of their own, and lived with an ex-wife in an apartment. He seemed to have enough money for the car, though,”said Monroe.

”We’ve had six police officers waiting outside the office of East Market Street doctor. He was arrested without incident,”said Monroe.
