SACRAMENTO, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Police in California said a bank robber who claimed to have a bomb in a fast food bag was actually only carrying a pair of McDonald's apple pies.

Sacramento police said Daniel Hegwood, 33, was carrying the McDonald's bag when he walked into a Wells Fargo bank around 1:15 p.m. Saturday and told a teller there was a bomb in the bag, KCRA-TV, Sacramento, reported Tuesday.

"The suspect left a package at one of the teller windows and said there was a bomb inside. He got cash from the teller and fled on foot," police spokesman Andrew Pettit said.

The spokesman said Hegwood, who left the bag at the bank, was found in the nearby Sutter Hospital parking garage wearing a red backpack with money protruding from it.

Police said Hegwood claimed to have a bomb in his backpack, but they found only money and Hegwood's belongings.

Investigators said the fast food bag Hegwood left at the bank was found to contain two McDonald's apple pies.
