HARRISBURG, Pa., March 21 (UPI) -- Police in Pennsylvania said a man accused of robbing a bank first asked to open an account and showed tellers two forms of identification.

Harrisburg police said Daniel Rahynes, 35, showed up at the Metro bank on Second Street about 1:40 p.m. Sunday and said he wanted to open an account, providing the required two forms of identification, The Patriot-News, Harrisburg, reported Monday.

Investigators said Rahynes soon announced he had made a mistake and was really there to rob the facility. They said he fled with a small amount of cash and drove off in a small car, which was involved in a hit-and-run with another vehicle a few moments later.

Rahynes was involved in another crash in the Carlisle area later in the afternoon and was arrested by Pennsylvania State Police on suspected drunken driving charges.

Troopers identified the suspect, recovered the money and turned him over to Harrisburg police, who jailed him on suspected robbery charges.
