Hey Taxi! Over here!

Police: Suspect Took Cab To, From Bank

EAST POINT, Ga. (AP) - Police said they easily caught a bank robbery suspect after he had a taxi take him to and from the scene of the crime.

East Point police Captain Russell Popham said officers arrested Marcus Chisholm at his apartment just a few hours after they said he robbed a SunTrust Bank.

Authorities said Chisholm had a cab pick him up at his apartment, take him to the bank and then take him home after the robbery.

The cab driver gave officers Chisholm's address and identified him in the bank's surveillance video.
