Bank Robber Leaves Paper Trail

WILMINGTON -- A bank robber's wits didn't get him very far Wednesday. He didn't get any cash and he didn't get rid of the proof.

Police arrested a man for attempted common law robbery of the Waccamaw Bank on South Kerr Avenue. Police say the man ran off before getting any money.

They caught him in a nearby shopping center parking lot along with the note he was going to use to rob the bank. The man was not armed.

Authorities are still trying to piece together the story.
