Police: Man leaves wallet behind after robbery

- Upper Darby police say a man who robbed a Subway restaurant left police with quite a cluehe actually left his wallet behind. 

"He flunked 'Robbery 101', so thank God he was stupid," Upper Darby Police Superintendent Mike Chitwood said.

James Dean gave detectives the perfect 'tip' after the 30-year-old allegedly robbed a Subway restaurant on South 69th Street in Upper Darby.

Police say he left a camouflage wallet behind and inside was Dean's Pennsylvania Access Card with his name right on the front.

"If he didn't drop his wallet, we'd probably never identified him," Superintendent Chitwood said.

The robbery happened on Friday afternoon around 2 p.m. According to police, Dean told the two female employees he had a gun and to hand over the cash.

When they told him he needed to make a purchase in order for the register to open that's when police say he jumped over the counter, grabbed a bag of chips and told one of the young women to ring him up.

"She refused and that's when he smacked her around a little bit. That's when he took the cash register and threw it on the ground and broke it open," Superintendent Chitwood said

According to police, Dean got away with between 5 and 6 hundred dollars.

"This guy is really, really an animal," Superintendent Chitwood said.

Chitwood tweeted for Dean to turn himself in and while he's here stop by the police lost and found to retrieve his wallet.

Police think Dean could be in Maryland where he has a lot of ties. They are in contact with Maryland authorities and say its just a matter of time before he's picked up.
