John H. Ford looked like the cat that ate the canary as police searched him for weapons.

After all, he had just swallowed what police believe to be a key piece of evidence against him; the holdup note he allegedly used to rob a bank earlier that afternoon.

What he didn’t expect was that his actions would be caught on the police dash cam video.

Even though it is impossible to determine the contents of that note, police still found a gun and ink-stained cash in his car.
