Times Wire Reports

The detailed information on the back of the robbery note made it pretty easy for authorities to arrest a suspect.

Charging documents from U.S. District Court allege that Todd Waller Markham visited a Washington Federal Savings bank in Murray, Utah, last week and gave the teller a note demanding cash. The court papers say he was given some money and left.

But the reverse side of the note listed information about Markham from a drug screening, including his name, Social Security number and birth date.
