CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Police say two cans of spaghetti sauce in a bag were the weapons a woman used to hold up a bank in southeast Michigan.
The robbery happened about 11:30 a.m. Saturday at a Fifth Third Bank branch in Macomb County's Clinton Township, about 15 miles north-northeast of Detroit.
Police say a woman about 60 years old told bank employees she had a bomb in her cloth bag and demanded money. They say she took an undisclosed amount of money and escaped in a car with a man at the wheel.
The Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News say a state police bomb squad scanned the bag and found the sauce.
