Sacramento police have found no bombs despite threats from a man arrested after he allegedly robbed a Wells Fargo branch this afternoon.
Instead, they found stolen cash, a few of the suspect's personal belongings and a couple apple pies from McDonald's, according to police.
Sgt. Andrew Pettit, police spokesman, identified the suspect as 33-year-old Daniel Hegwood, who was a parolee at large at the time of his arrest.
According to Pettit, Hegwood went inside the bank, at Capitol Avenue and Alhambra Boulevard, early this afternoon and demanded cash, threatening that he had a bomb inside a package that he placed in front of the teller.
He fled on foot with a "substantial" amount of cash as people in the bank called police. Arriving officers quickly found the suspect hiding in a nearby parking garage, Pettit said.
Hegwood fought with officers, and threatened that he had a bomb in a backpack he was carrying, Pettit said.
Police evacuated the bank and called out the bomb squad to inspect the backpack and a package that was left inside the bank.
Officers ultimately determined that the package inside the bank was a McDonald's bag with apple pies inside, Pettit said, and inside Hegwood's backpack police found the stolen cash and some personal belongings.
