The FBI says a Pennsylvania man told authorities he robbed a bank because he was "sick of being poor."
The FBI says 23-year-old Cameron Minniefield was arrested Tuesday at a bus station in Erie, his hometown. They say he was planning to go to Cleveland.
Police say Minniefield took a bus to Meadville, about 30 miles south of Erie, Tuesday afternoon and robbed the First National Bank. Police say Minniefield gave a teller a note, left with $1,010 and took a taxi back to Erie.
Police say witnesses saw Minniefield at a library across the street from the bank before the heist and later identified him as the robber.

Man guilty of indecency, told to destroy shorts
A man has been ordered to destroy his skimpy work shorts after exposing himself to eight women while performing renovations on their kitchens, a court has been told.
Prosecutor Lewis Shillito told the court Owen wore skimpy shorts or stripped down to his underwear while he worked, allowing what the women described as an "extremely large" penis to poke out from the fabric.
The court was told Owen would also masturbate in front of the women, aged between 45 and 83, and rub cream onto his exposed genitals while complaining of a rash.
Magistrate Noel Nunan ordered Owen's work shorts, which were seized by police, be destroyed.
He also refused Owen's request for the return of penis rings he had worn to work to enlarge his genitals.
