LAWRENCE, Mass. -- A homeless man caught drinking vodka had a sock stuffed with thousands of dollars cash and is wanted for a bank holdup in New Hampshire, police said.
Derrick Wright, 33, was arrested and charged on an outstanding warrant for the June 23 robbery of a credit union in Manchester, N.H.
He is accused of walking into the bank then, saying "This is a hold up," and taking off with $4,400 cash, according to police reports.
Wright was spotted by police over the weekend drinking from a bottle of vodka in a public place. During the booking process, a white sock tied to his pants which hung down into his underwear was found and contained $2,500 cash.
A check of the man’s finger prints through an FBI database revealed Wright had a lengthy criminal history.
