Cops: Suspect stopped for chicken and biscuits after heist

NEW KENSINGTON, Pa. (AP) - 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 (Tarentum) Valley News Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1ICA7f3 ) 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 suspect run past the restaurant and then pause before coming back and going inside.
