From the robber's perspective, the timing couldn't have been worse. The suspect got into a cab in Reading, Pennsylvania. Then he pulled a gun out on the driver and demanded his money.

At that moment, by sheer coincidence, a Berks County Sheriff's deputy pulled up behind the taxi.

The robber noticed and decided it was time to leave. This got the attention of Deputy Terry Ely, who drew his own sidearm and arrested the robber. He has been charged with robbery and making terroristic threats.
