A robber was tracked down because of his choice of stationery.

The suspect, identified as Edward Braxton, 38, entered a branch of Suncoast Schools FCU on July 11 and handed the teller a note demanding cash before making off with $335.

Braxton was identified easily because the hold-up note was written on the back of his friend's stationery with his friend's name printed on it. Police located the man who led them to Braxton.

Braxton was later picked out of a lineup by credit union employees and his fingerprints were matched to those taken from the scene.
