A CBS 46 reporter helped cops catch a local bank robber and didn’t realize it.

Ashley Thompson was collecting man on the street interviews when Eric Rivers offered to talk about traffic at a busy intersection in the Atlanta area.

After the story aired, cops called the CBS affiliate to get more answers. It turns out Rivers removed the face mask and cap he used during his robberies to do the interview then robbed another bank.

You can watch the full story below including video of Rivers arrest.
