OREGON CITY, Ore. – Police arrested a man who they said robbed an Oregon City bank hours after he was released from jail Tuesday morning and called a cab to drive him away from the area.
David M. Literal robbed the Bank of the West at 1301 Molalla Ave. just before noon, police said. The bank is a few blocks from the Oregon City Police Station, so officers quickly arrived at the scene.
Police found the suspect's jacket with his Clackamas County inmate ID inside.
Lt. Jim Band said officers noticed a cab in the area a few minutes later. They spoke with the cab driver and watched for the man who called the cab, Band said.
Literal showed up and was arrested. Police said he had a “substantial amount of cash on him.”
A spokesperson with the Clackamas County Jail said Literal was released after serving time for failing to appear in court in a Lake Oswego theft case.
