Man Tries Robbing Bank With Apple Pies

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A robbery suspect was arrested Saturday after allegedly attempting to hold up an East Sacramento bank by claiming a bag containing apple pies was actually a bomb, authorities said.

The Sacramento Police Department said 33-year-old Daniel Hedwood entered the Wells Fargo bank on the 3000 block of Capitol Avenue shortly after 1:15 p.m. and demanded cash from a teller, claiming that a fast-food bag he was holding contained a bomb.

Hegwood fled on foot, leaving the bag behind, but was quickly arrested by officers in a nearby parking garage, police said. Hegwood resisted arrest and again claimed he was in possession of an explosive device, according to authorities.

Bomb technicians inspected the bag inside the bank and determined that the only items inside the bag were two apple pies.

Hegwood was arrested on charges of robbery, resisting arrest and other charges and is being held without bail due to violating his parole.
