If you want to escape the police after a robbery, why not try your couch? That’s what this guy did. But, alas, it didn’t work.
Police say a bank robbery suspect was arrested after officers found him hiding inside a couch at his Southern California home.
Investigators say Francisco Hernandez was caught on surveillance video June 30 entering a bank, pulling a semi-automatic handgun from a large envelope and demanding money.
The 39-year-old was identified as a suspect and a search warrant was served Wednesday at his home in Ventura. SWAT officers entered the house and with the help of a police dog located Hernandez, who was found inside a couch that had been modified.
The Ventura County Star says (http://bit.ly/2umdL3E) Hernandez was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery. It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney.
