DESTIN, Fla. (CBS/AP) Investigators knew a man accused of stealing thousands from a Florida Panhandle bank didn't stuff the cash in his wallet.

That's because he somehow left the wallet there, making it easy for authorities to find him.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office says 26-year-old Jordan Sampaio brandished a handgun at Destin's Union State Bank on Thursday, ordering employees to the floor. Deputies say he fled with $6,000.

While investigators searched the bank, a witness found a wallet nearby.

Investigators showed the ID photo to bank employees, who thought it might be the robber.

Deputies searched the man's house and say they found cash and a gun that appeared to be the one used by the robber.

Sampaio was arrested. He was being held at the county jail without bond. -
