Deputies: Man confesses to attempted robbery

WAUPACA (AP) -- The Waupaca County sheriff's department says a man confessed to an attempted bank robbery when he was picked up for something else.

The sheriff's department had originally picked up the 34-year-old man from rural Waupaca at 3:30 p.m. Thursday for a probation violation hold. According to the sheriff's department, after talking with deputies the man confessed to attempting to rob the Farmers State Bank in King the day before.

The sheriff's department says the man entered the bank but panicked and ran off after a teller shouted at him while he put on a mask.

Investigators found clothing and mask near the bank and planned to use DNA to identify him.
