Robber blown apart
The week's news at a glance.
A pizza deliveryman was killed this week when explosives strapped to his body detonated minutes after he robbed a Pennsylvania bank. Police stopped Brian Douglas Wells, 46, as he drove away from the heist with a bag of cash. They found a sophisticated, locked collar around his neck with a bomb attached. Wells told the cops that someone had fastened the bomb to him and ordered him to pull the robbery. Its going to go off, Wells hollered. I dont have a lot of time! The explosives went off before a bomb squad arrived. Wells was the only casualty. The FBI was seeking tips from the public about the puzzling case, as well as analyzing the handwriting on an extensive robbery note that Wells handed to a bank teller.
