Johnston Bank Robbery Blows Up in Robber’s Face

A bank robbery in Johnston went horribly wrong Wednesday when the robber's accomplices ditched him in the parking lot.

Police say the suspect walked into a Citizens Bank, demanded money, and specifically said, 'no dye pack!'  The teller ignored the demand to skip the dye pack and when it detonated outside, his friends in the getaway car took one look at the robber and fled.

He was caught in the restroom of a nearby Wendy's trying to wash the dye off.
