Toilet paper links Pa. man to heist attempt.
UNIONTOWN, Pa. -- Police say 29-year-old Eric Frey tried to rob Michael Maria's Pizza on Saturday by handing an employee a note written on toilet paper that read: ''I have a gun. Give me $300.'' Police arrived before Frey could leave because an employee hit a panic button.
Frey told officers he was forced to commit the robbery by a large, bearded man with a gun who accosted him in a nearby alley. But police say a search of Frey's apartment wiped out that explanation: That's where they say they found a newly opened roll of toilet paper with the pen impression from Frey's note on an outer sheet.
Online court records don't list an attorney for Frey.
