Man who allegedly tried to rob bank caught half a block away

WARSAW, Ind. -- Warsaw Police arrested a suspect in an attempted bank robbery just half a block from the Lake City Bank.

Employees told police around 9 a.m. a man entered the bank and yelled, "Give me all your [expletive deleted] money."

The man had a bandana covering his hand, which employees feared was covering a gun, police said.

The suspect paced the lobby, then walked out of the bank after about 15 seconds and left the bank and walked eastbound.

Witnesses told police the suspect was a white male in his 20s, wearing green sweat pants and no shirt.

A Warsaw Police officer in an unmarked car was at the drive-up/ATM on the east side of the bank when the suspect walked in front of him after leaving the bank, police said.

A bank employee alerted the officer about the attempted robbery and the suspect was taken into custody less than half a block from the bank.

Police said they did not find a weapon.

The suspect was identified as 27-year-old Raymond Halsey of Syracuse.

He is facing preliminary charges of attempted bank robbery, failure to identify and disorderly conduct.

He is being held on a $10,250 surety bond.
