Dye pack explodes in suspect's pocket

UPI News Service, 04/13/2011 

Police in Florida said a dye pack exploded in a bank robbery suspect's pocket, injuring him and leading to his being detained by restaurant workers.

Winter Park police said the man, whose identity was not released, used a threatening note to rob the Bank of America on Aloma Avenue about 11:20 a.m. Tuesday and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, the Orlando Sentinel reported Wednesday.

Police said the suspect was injured when the dye pack hidden in the stolen cash exploded in his pocket and he attempted to hide inside the nearby Giovanni's Italian Restaurant.

However, restaurant workers chased the man out of the business and eventually caught up with and detained him until police arrived.

The nature of the man's injury was not released.
