'FINDME' Plate Dooms Alleged Bank Robbery

NORFOLK, Neb. -- Arlie Bichlmeier's personalized license plate reads "FINDME." Thanks to the plate, authorities did find him about 90 minutes after he allegedly tried to rob the Security National Bank branch in Laurel on Wednesday.

Bichlmeier, 58, walked into the bank about 9:30 a.m. and indicated his intention to rob the facility, the State Patrol said. There was no weapon shown and the suspect fled the bank without any money, the Patrol said.

Witnesses described the suspects vehicle as a 1994 Black GMC pickup, specifically the eye-catching "FINDME" plate.

At about 11 a.m., the Patrol and Norfolk Police Department located a vehicle and suspect matching the description in a parking lot.

Bichlmeier, of Norfolk, was questioned and arrested. He was lodged in the Cedar County Jail on charges of attempted robbery and making terrorist threats.
