Wichita Police Make Easy Arrest in Bar Robbery


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Police in Wichita had little trouble finding the suspect in the early-morning robbery of a bar.

The Wichita Eagle reports the 41-year-old man was a regular customer at Judy’s Place, where other patrons helpfully gave police his name and address.

Police say the man went behind the bar at closing time early Monday, pushed a cashier out of the way and grabbed several hundred dollars before walking out.

Wichita police Lt. Doug Nolte says officers followed the tips from other customers and found the man at his home, along with the stolen cash.

Nolte says he does not know how much alcohol the man consumed before he stole the money.
