Twinsburg police said a dashboard mounted camera on a police cruiser recorded John Ford, 35, eating a piece of paper while officers searched his clothing for weapons Thursday, the Akron (Ohio) Beacon-Journal reported Monday.
"He grabbed it in his mouth, just like Pacman," Patrolman Daniel Biada said. "He just ate it right there."
Police said they discovered a .38-caliber pistol and an undisclosed amount of cash covered in red ink inside Ford's vehicle.
Authorities said Ford walked into a FirstMerit branch in Streetsboro Thursday and handed a teller a note demanding money. He did not display the gun inside the bank, police said.
Police said they are also investigating whether Ford was connected to bank robberies in nearby Stow and Akron.
