Bank robbery suspect sought just $1
NORTHERN CAMBRIA, Pa. (AP) - October 9, 2012 (WPVI) -- Police say a man who robbed a western Pennsylvania bank last week handed tellers notes demanding only $1 because he apparently hoped to be sent to a federal prison nearby.
But instead of being held in the Federal Correctional Institution at Loretto, 50-year-old Jeffrey Mullen remained in the Cambria County Prison awaiting a preliminary hearing Tuesday on charges from Friday's heist at the AmeriServ bank in his hometown of Northern Cambria.
Mullen must undergo a mental evaluation if he manages to post $50,000 bail, or he won't be released from jail.
The Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown says McMullen handed two notes to tellers spelling out his brief demands.
One said, "FBI custody. Preferbly (sic) Loretto Pa. No press. Seal all files." The other said, "Federal bank robbery. Please hand over $1.00."
