Bank Robber Stole $1,000; Got Arrested in a Port-a-Potty


REVERE, Mass. — A bank robbery suspect is in police custody after authorities say he tried to make a smelly escape in a portable toilet.

Police say 41-year-old Steven Spolidoro, of Woburn, walked into a Revere bank around 1 p.m. Wednesday, demanded money and fled with about $1,000 cash.

An off-duty officer in the area provided authorities with a description of Spolidoro’s vehicle. It was spotted in Boston, and police say Spolidoro abandoned his vehicle and ran away on foot.

Authorities eventually located Spolidoro hiding in a port-a-potty near the TD Garden arena.

One officer crashed his SUV during the pursuit of Spolidoro. WCVB-TV reports the officer is expected to be OK.
