A man who was carrying a note demanding money and who had pieces of a foam mask glued to his face was arrested in north east Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Wednesday morning, according to police.
Officers believe Evan Lemmon, 23, was planning on committing a robbery. A citizen called police to report that a man was putting on a mask and wiping down the inside of a vehicle in an alley and looked suspicious, according to spokesman Tanner Tixier.
Officers discovered the vehicle he was in was stolen, and they arrested him.
Lemmon, was carrying a note in his pocket that read: “I have a gun, give me the 10s, 20s, 50s and 100s now!” Officers also found he had a mask with him, and pieces of the mask were still glued to his face.
Lemmon was charged with receiving or transferring a stolen vehicle, possession of burglary tools and tampering with evidence and booked into the county jail.
“Officers and detectives more than likely foiled an armed robbery attempt,” Tixier said. Police say that this is Lemmon’s 3rd felony arrest since April.
