According to body-camera footage captured by the Huron Police Department, officers discovered the bank robbery suspect, identified as 27-year-old Tristan Heidl, hiding in the bank’s roof over the drive-thru.

As the police patiently waited for the bank robbery suspect to descend, the bank robbery suspect finally made his move, but to his misfortune, he fell right into the recycling bin. The officers wasted no time in taking the robbery suspect into custody. Authorities revealed that Heidl had a bag filled with construction tools in his possession, pointing to his intent to crack the bank’s safes.
Robbery Suspect Admitted To His Actions
When questioned by the police, the robbery suspect admitted to his actions and reportedly stated that the robbery suspect was driven by financial struggles. However, his improvised escape plan failed spectacularly, leading to his apprehension on charges of breaking and entering, possession of criminal tools, and safecracking, according to CNN.

As the case progresses, the robbery suspect has opted to forgo a preliminary hearing and now awaits a grand jury decision in the Erie County Common Pleas Court in Sandusky, Ohio.
