ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — A man robbing a bank demanded the money by writing a note on one of his own checks, authorities say.

Not surprisingly, he was caught soon afterward.

Forest Kelly Bissonnette, 27, apparently tried to cover his name on the check, then handed the note to a teller Sept. 5 at the Bank of the West in Englewood, according to authorities.

"We could still make it out even though he blacked it out," FBI agent Rene VonderHaar said. Nearly $5,000 was taken.

Surveillance video showed a suspect similar to Bissonnette's description, and a tipster said a man named Forest Kelly claimed he got $5,000 in a bank robbery, according to a federal complaint.

Bissonnette remained in federal custody Tuesday after turning himself in Friday. A public defender was to be appointed for Bissonnette, who doesn't have a listed phone number.

What an idiot. This reminds me of the one where the robber wanted to steal beer but the cashier asked for ID and the loser showed it to him! The cashier told the cops the address and he got arrested.
