Suspect Stopped for Chicken-and-Biscuits After Heist: Police

Police arrested a western Pennsylvania bank robbery suspect when he stopped for chicken-and-biscuits at a restaurant two blocks away.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 32-year-old Shane Lindsey who was arrested Wednesday about 20 minutes after he allegedly robbed the Citizens Bank in downtown New Kensington.

Police tell the Valley News Dispatch that witnesses saw a bald man matching Lindsey's description run toward a restaurant after the heist. Police knew the business had surveillance video and went inside to view it hoping for clues as to where the suspect went — only to find Lindsey eating at a booth.

Police say the video showed the robbery suspect run past the restaurant and then pause before coming back and going inside. Lindsay had been staying in a nearby halfway house.
