How'd you know it was me?

A woman robbed an East side bank today. An alert teller somehow put a GPS tracking device inside one of the 100 dollar bills. The suspect seemed surprised when the police found her hiding inside a garbage tote next to her home, just a few blocks away. The ACLU has announced a rally for 12 noon on Wednesday outside of city hall, claiming the new GPS devices invade on the privacy of bank robbers...

BUFFALO, NY-Technology played a role in helping Buffalo Police nab a suspected bank robber Friday afternoon.

They say a woman, believed to be in her mid-20's, handed a teller at the Bank of America on East Delavan a demand note shortly after 1 PM.

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown will be addressing the arrest at a late afternoon news conference in his City Hall office. Stay tuned to and Channel 2 news for the latest on this developing story.
