Police say man robs Grand Prairie bank then returns, gives himself up

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (AP) — Police say a man suspected of robbing a North Texas bank and falsely claiming to have a bomb returned to the scene to surrender and give back the cash.

Grand Prairie police said an Arlington man was arrested following Wednesday’s holdup of a Chase bank branch. Formal charges were pending. Nobody was hurt.

A police statement said a man walked into the bank around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday and gave a teller a note that said he wanted money and had a bomb. He took some money, left a package in the bank and drove off.

Grand Prairie police were at the scene when he returned and surrendered, saying the stolen cash was in his truck.
