ALBANY (Reuters) – An Albany man turned himself into police after seeing himself on TV news robbing a bank but was turned away by officers who told him to come back the next day, police said on Tuesday.

Albany resident Darrell Lewis, 40, surrendered to police hours after his Nov. 1 holdup of a downtown bank but was told to come back the next day to be arrested.

Lewis went to a different station the following day and was charged with robbery, Albany police spokesman Jimmy Miller said.

The incident has prompted an internal investigation.
