Stealer Defeated by Cardinal Dye

One of the things that you need to do to succeed in life is to carpe diem, to seize the moment. That's exactly what one man did, or attempted to do, during today's Super Bowl celebration parade in Pittsburgh, or Sixburgh, as we're calling it for now.

The robber entered the Huntington Bank branch located on Smithfield Street, approached a teller window, and handed the teller a note demanding all the money.

That's pretty good thinking - the cops were going to be outside focusing on the parade, and the robber, who was wearing a black and gold Steelers jacket, could just blend in with the crowd watching the parade. But there was just one little thing...the money that the teller gave him had a red dye pack inside. Once outside, the dye packet exploded, the robber threw the money to the ground, and made his getaway. All of the money was recovered.

Police described the suspect as white, between 6 feet 1 and 6 feet 3 inches tall, wearing a black and gold Steelers jacket with a gold hood, and blue jeans. That describes a lot of Pittsburghers!
