Bank robbery suspect sought just $1

NORTHERN CAMBRIA, Pa. (AP) - October 9, 2012

But instead of being held in the Federal Correctional Institution at Loretto, 50-year-old Jeffrey Mullen remained in the Cambria County Prison awaiting a preliminary hearing Tuesday on charges from Friday's heist at the AmeriServ bank in his hometown of Northern Cambria.

Mullen must undergo a mental evaluation if he manages to post $50,000 bail, or he won't be released from jail.

The Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown says McMullen handed two notes to tellers spelling out his brief demands.

One said, "FBI custody. Preferbly (sic) Loretto Pa. No press. Seal all files." The other said, "Federal bank robbery. Please hand over $1.00."
