Investigators track down Cleveland bank teller who stuffed US$215K into a paper bag and vanished 52 years ago

Theodore John Conrad showed up for work as a bank teller in Cleveland. At the end of his shift, the then 20-year-old stole US$215,000, stuffed it into a paper bag -- and vanished, authorities said.

That was in July 1969, and he stole the equivalent of US$1.7 million today in one of the biggest bank robberies in the city, the U.S. Marshals Service said.

Now more than five decades later, the federal law enforcement agency announced Friday that it's identified the man considered one of the nation's most wanted fugitives.
