Robbery suspect leaves behind big clue

Police had little trouble tracking him down

OCALA, Fla. - A 22-year-old robbery suspect left police a clue at the crime scene. He dropped his driver's license.

Ocala Police investigators say Anthony T. Varnum and 22-year-old Casey Gabriel Stouffer were arrested Monday shortly after officers responded to an alarm at the Horse & Hounds restaurant.

Officers saw a 42-inch television leaning against a wall and found a truck, its hood still warm, outside. On the ground was Varnum's driver's license. Police found the pair at a nearby fast food restaurant. Stouffer had screws and hardware from the television bracket in his pocket.

According to a report, the men ran when they saw police pull up just as they removed the last bracket from the wall. They were charged with burglary and grand theft.
