Would-be NC bank robber identified after he used paystub to pen holdup note
A man who on Tuesday unsuccessfully tried to rob a North Carolina bank was identified and arrested after police say he passed a note demanding money from a teller at the drive through that was written on his pay stub.
Police in Fairmont say Dennis Wayne Price, Jr., 43, of Fayetteville was arrested in Fairmont after a similar robbery attempt in Fayetteville – again using his paystub for the holdup note -- led to a chase involving North Carolina Highway Patrol troopers which ended back in Fairmont.
He was charged with attempted common law robbery, possession of a stolen vehicle, fleeing and eluding, and driving while intoxicated.
He was jailed in Robeson County and given a $250,000 bond; Fairmont Police say charges are pending in other jurisdictions.
