Man Robs Bank On Lunch Break

(Lexington, SC) -- Deputies say a man who visited a Lexington County bank on his lunch break wasn't there to cash his paycheck.

Instead, deputies say Leland Beatty robbed the First Citizens Bank on Platt Springs Road in West Columbia last week to get money to pay back a co-worker.

Beatty went back to work apparently wearing the same clothes he was seen wearing in the robbery.

Someone who recognized him called the sheriff's office, and the 33-year-old was arrested.
