Man with a plunger tries to rob Utica bank

Submitted By AP Wire Service, Editors Note APNewsNow

UTICA, N.Y. (AP), Apr 13 _ Police say a 49-year-old man tried to rob a central New York bank armed with a toilet plunger.

Utica police tell local media outlets that Lawrence Deptola went into city bank Thursday afternoon and threatened a teller with the plunger.

Police responded after two other banks had previously called authorities about a suspicious man entering those facilities.

Deptola was arrested after a foot chase and charged with attempted third-degree robbery.

It could not be determined Friday morning if Deptola had a lawyer.
