CHARLEROI, Pa. (CBS/AP) The FBI says a southwestern Pennsylvania bank robbery suspect has been caught "red-handed."
Fifty-year-old Kurt Fritzel, of Charleroi, is in jail after police and the FBI say he robbed a Citizens Bank branch a few doors down from his apartment.
Witnesses say a dye pack hidden in the money he stole exploded in his hands, creating a red cloud that led authorities to his home.
Authorities searched Fritzel's apartment above a thrift and used furniture shop Monday after the heist.
Senior FBI Agent David Hedges, who heads the bureau's Charleroi office, declined to comment except to call it a "pathetic case."
