LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say they were able to track down a man accused of robbing a St. Matthews Walgreens last week thanks to part of a demand note he left behind. 

According to an arrest report, it happened Aug. 7 around 5:30 a.m.. That's when police say 27-year-old Samuel Lloyd Sidle entered the Walgreens at 4240 Shelbyville Road and placed a note stating he was armed and demanding money on the counter at the cash register in the front of the store. 

Police say the store manager gave the suspect cash, then tried to grab the note from the suspect's hand as he was leaving. The note tore, and police say the store manager kept part of it. 

A St. Matthews crime scene detective recovered the evidence, and forensic technicians were able to find several latent fingerprints that matched Lloyd's prints. 

Police arrested Lloyd on Aug. 14. He's being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $50,000 cash bond.
