A bank robbery suspect's less-then-brilliant getaway plan led to him getting arrested while waiting for the bus.

Around noon, Kyle Alan Veach, 24, handed a note announcing the robbery to a teller at the U.S. Bank branch at 310 Glenneyre St., in Laguna Beach. The suspect did not show a weapon, according to police.

Witnesses gave police a description of the suspect and pointed to where he fled, Laguna Beach police Sgt. Louise Callus told City News Service.

About 1 p.m., an officer saw someone matching the suspect's description waiting at a bus stop at Jasmine Street and North Pacific Coast Highway, Callus said. Veach was taken into custody without incident and the bank loot was recovered.
