YORK, Pa., Nov. 14 (UPI) -- A would-be bank robber threatened to file an official complaint after finding that a bank in Springettsbury Township, Pa., had no cash on hand, police said.

Police said 48-year-old Joseph Goetz allegedly attempted to rob a Susquehanna Bank branch office in the town this week shortly after it opened, the York (Pa.) Daily Record said Friday.

After learning that the bank had no cash on hand to give him, Goetz fled the scene while vowing to file a complaint with bank managers, police allege.

A bank customer who had been using the site's drive-thru services allegedly noticed the would-be robber fleeing the scene Thursday and followed Goetz as he left in his car.

The unidentified customer called police, who stopped Goetz's vehicle and arrested him on suspicion of attempting to commit a robbery.

The Daily Record said the alleged robber is being held on $25,000 bail.
