Police nab suspect after he eats the holdup note
A Payson man facing legal troubles allegedly got so desperate for cash he plotted to rob a Prescott bank earlier this month. But police foiled Clinton Carl Gimlen’s plan when someone let Gila County sheriff’s investigators in on his idea, giving Prescott police and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents time to alert area banks and ultimately arrest Gimlen on charges including attempted robbery. However, officers were not quick enough to stop Gimlen from reportedly eating the robbery note. Gimlen, 39, now faces three more charges on his rap sheet.
