DOVER, Del. -- Dover police say a robber made their jobs easy by handing a convenience store clerk a demand note that had his name on the back.

Thirty-six-year-old Bruce Manlove was arrested shortly after the robbery early Wednesday. He's accused of stealing 17 packs of Newport cigarettes.

Police say Manlove walked into a 7-Eleven around 3:15 a.m. and handed the clerk a note that read, "This is a robbery."

The clerk handed over the cigarettes but refused to give the note back. Police say the note was written on the back of Manlove's Department of Correction paperwork.

Police spokesman Capt. Tim Stump says this was one of the occasions when a defendant makes things easy for investigators.
