Man caught in pizzeria with red smoke coming out of his pants after robbing a bank

Man wanted money, teller gave him exploding dye

WINTER PARK, Fla. - A pizza shop owner in Winter Park stopped a man who had just robbed a bank, from trying to steal his dough.

The suspicious person strolled into the Giovanni's Pizza pizzeria with puffs of red dye billowing from his pockets.

Employees blocked the smoking suspect's escape route.

Alex Nikolloj, the shop's owner, followed the smoke trail out of his shop and confronted the man.

"I didn't mean to do anything to you.  I robbed a bank," the man told Nikolloj.

Police say the suspect, identified as Quentin Walker, let his greed become his downfall.

Walker was given $1700 dollars from the bank, but demanded more before leaving.

So, the teller also included the exploding dye.
