A suspect is in custody after police say he tried to rob a bank. But that's not the unusual part. What's odd is the way the man got to the scene of the crime.The Wachovia bank on Kirkwood at Westheimer in west Houston was robbed at about 4:30pm. Police say the robber took a taxi to the bank and used the same cab to flee the scene.

Authorities caught up to the suspect and returned him to the scene for witnesses to identify.

The investigation is ongoing.
