Suspected robber nabbed after bragging on radio call-in
CHICAGO - A man who called a radio station to brag about his role in a bank robbery may be regretting picking up his phone.

Randy Washington, 24, pleaded guilty Monday to federal charges that will likely put him behind bars for more than four years. He admitted he and five others robbed the South Chicago Heights TCF Bank branch in April 2004.

The group escaped with $81,000, which they split. There were no leads in the case until earlier this year, when someone called the popular confessions show on WKSC-FM to talk about the heist.

The caller described the exact amount of cash taken, noted an employee was in on it and bragged that the group had since been "buyin' Louis Vuitton this, Blass that, everything, man."

Authorities quickly traced the call back to Washington's cell phone and arrested him.
