Minnesota Robbery Suspect Locked Keys in Getaway Car

July 15, 2014  | 

A Minnesota bank robber overcame having locked the keys in his getaway car southwest of Duluth only to be caught after being pulled over for a second time as he drew closer to the Twin Cities, according to authorities, reports the Star Tribune.

Moshood Itabiyi, 22, of Coon Rapids, was charged Friday in Carlton County District Court with first-degree aggravated robbery and third-degree burglary in the stickup Thursday afternoon of the Northview Bank branch in Barnum. Itabiyi posted bond and has another court date next week.

Once in the Carlton County jail, Itabiyi told investigators he had locked the keys in his getaway car, prompting him to break into a nearby residential garage for a hammer, which he used to bust out a window and resume his dash toward the Twin Cities.
