A German bank robber has been arrested after he e-mailed police to correct factual errors in their accounts of his crime, says Germany’s Bild. The 19-year-old robber, who was not named, mocked officers for having misreported his age, height, and accent, and for having thought he’d escaped on foot, when he had used a car. Police traced the suspect’s e-mail and arrested him in a gambling parlor. “His game of cat and mouse went all wrong,” a police spokesman says.
