LAWRENCE -- Police in Lawrence say they caught a bank robber 'red handed.' Literally, that is.
John Tripp was arrested within an hour of robbing a Sovereign Bank branch after a dye pack in his cash loot exploded.
Lawrence Police Chief John Romero says an officer arrested Tripp after noticing red dye covering his hands and on some of the stolen cash.
Romero says the red dye was a "giveaway" that Tripp was their man.
The suspect allegedly robbed the bank by passing a note to tellers threatening that he had a gun, then fled by foot toward a nearby rooming house. But bank employees managed to hide a dye pack with the stolen cash.

Saw this scumbucket in court this afternoon. $200K bail on that case and he's being held from another one. The D.A was extremely impressive on this case. She really had her shit together for it.
