Elmer Fudd bank wobber

The sus­pected “Elmer Fudd” rob­ber was nabbed by a team of police Thurs­day night just after he ran from a bank to a get­away car in Van­cou­ver, Washington.

When offi­cers stopped in the park­ing lot, a man iden­ti­fied as Daniel L. Teeples, 39, was taken into cus­tody and accused of seven counts of first-degree rob­bery, said Van­cou­ver Police Depart­ment spokes­woman Kim Kapp. The dri­ver, iden­ti­fied as 31-year-old Anne Louise Bradley, 31, was charged with five counts of first-degree rob­bery, Kapp said.

Both were housed in the Clark County Jail.

The robber’s nick­name came from the cloth­ing that he habit­u­ally wore in each heist. Inves­ti­ga­tors said that they were look­ing for Elmer Fudd dur­ing their two-month probe. “We’ve been work­ing on this for some time,” Kapp said.

It’s com­mon in rob­beries to give the rob­ber a name. In this case, the name fit,” she added.

The Bank of Amer­ica had reported a rob­bery at about 5:30 p.m.

Through the inves­ti­ga­tion we were able to set up sur­veil­lance. We were right there,” said Kapp.

The inves­ti­ga­tion began last Decem­ber, grow­ing stronger when sev­eral Van­cou­ver banks were robbed through Jan­u­ary, Kapp said.

Detec­tives from the department’s Major Crimes Unit and offi­cers from the Neigh­bor­hood Response Team joined forces, she said: “They were there right after the bank was robbed.”

She added that after a man robbed a teller, he ran from the bank on foot with an uniden­ti­fied amount of money and entered the wait­ing vehicle.

Teeples will remain in jail, as he’s cur­rently too ill to make the court date.
