Alleged Bank Robber Bites Police Officer
MUSKEGON, Mich. - A man who police say tried to eat a bank robbery note and then bit a police officer is facing felony charges. Leland Snyder, 24, of Muskegon, is charged in the March 2 robbery of a LaSalle Bank after police say he passed a teller a note demanding money. He also is charged with resisting and obstructing police causing injury.
There was no telephone listing for Snyder in Muskegon.
Authorities think Snyder was on his way to rob another business when Muskegon Heights police caught him Wednesday.
Police said he reached into his waistband, brought out a piece of paper and tried to eat it. When a police officer attempted to retrieve the note from Snyder's mouth, he was bitten on the thumb.
A preliminary examination was set for March 23.
