Hot dog shop owner Captain Barnes was written up in the Dormont-Brookline Patch on Feb. 14 as a feel-good Valentine’s Day feature subject.
He was in the Dormont-Brookline Patch again on Feb. 15 — but this time as a bank robbery suspect. (There’s no mention in the story that he was profiled on the site a day earlier.)
Barnes is accused of robbing a bank the day before the Valentine’s Day feature was posted. (Dormont-Brookline Patch editor Erin Faulk tells me she interviewed him on Feb. 7.)
