The FBI said that Lois J. Harvey, 40, handed a robbery note to a teller at Chase Bank on 1245 E. Long Street. Little did she know, an off-duty Columbus police officer in full uniform was in line behind her.[Previous TGIS]
The teller looked at the note and told Harvey she couldn't read it. Frustrated, she tried to explain the note to the teller. Then she noticed the officer, who was in the bank to make a deposit, the FBI said. Harvey grabbed the note and left the bank.
The officer, not realizing what was happening, stepped up to the teller and was told about the attempted robbery. The officer left the bank and caught up to Harvey, who then tried to eat the note. She was arrested and coughed up the note on the sidewalk.
