BENSALEM, Pa. -- Police in southeastern Pennsylvania said a man committed three bank robberies in three different towns -- and he did it by taxi.

KYW-AM reports it all started around noon Thursday, when the suspect police identified as Luke Radick walked into a bank in Bensalem and handed the teller a demand note.

Bensalem police Sgt. Andrew Aninsman says the suspect pulled the same thing in nearby Yardley about ten minutes later, then again a few miles away in Morrisville.

Aninsman says the cab driver figured out what was happening after the third robbery and called police.

The three robberies took place before 2 p.m. and Radick was behind bars by 4 p.m.

Police said Raddick was released from federal prison a day or two ago.
