CALGARY — Calgary police are investigating a bank robbery gone awry.

Police say that Tuesday morning, a man walked into a CIBC branch downtown and threatened a security guard with a knife.

He then proceeded to the wicket area where he robbed two bank tellers of an undisclosed amount of money.

But as the man left the bank and started running toward a waiting vehicle, the dye packs attached to the money went off, causing him to drop his knife and a portion of the cash.

Witness statements led police to the abandoned vehicle a short time later, and dog teams were able to track down a suspect.

A man has been taken into custody and charges are pending.
