According to, Morway claimed he had a gun and demanded cash from a teller during the robbery at the Key Bank branch.

He then fled the bank with the money. No one was injured during the robbery.

The North Olmsted Police Department said Morway was recognized by his parole officer when a photo of him was circulated on social media and in news reports.

"We need your help identifying the male in the picture!!! No, not for wearing his mask wrong. He robbed the Key Bank in North Olmsted a short time ago," the department wrote on Facebook shortly after the robbery took place.
