Police: Ohio Bank Robber Travels By Cab

CINCINNATI (AP) - A Cincinnati taxi driver says he unwittingly drove a bank robber to and from the crime and didn't realize what happened until he later saw police swarming the scene.

Driver Cheikh Lemine says he was annoyed Thursday morning by a young passenger in a tan cap who kept changing destinations and appeared to have no money. The man asked to be taken to a Cincinnati Savings and Loan branch for some cash.

Police say while Lemine waited outside, the unidentified suspect gave a teller a note demanding money and left with some in a McDonald's bag. Police describe the amount as small.

Lemine says the man returned to the taxi, gave him $20 and apologized for not paying sooner. The cabbie dropped his customer at a convenience store and received a $6 tip.
