    I'd like a large pie with pepperoni, mushrooms and extra cash, please.

    A San Francisco man is accused of robbing a Cow Hollow bank while holding a pizza box on Monday, reports the SF Examiner.

    Lawrence Swick, 29, allegedly handed a note demanding cash, to a teller at the Comercia Bank at 2001 Union Street. Then he told her to fill up his pizza box with the money, police said.

    After Swick fled, police found his pizza box, empty except for his note. Video surveillance and the box were key pieces of evidence in tracking down the thief.

    After searching the area, two Tenderloin Station officers found Swick.

    “In one of the hotels, the officers found the suspect inside his room, where they recovered additional evidence linking Swick to the bank robbery,” police said.

    Swick was then taken into custody and charged with bank robbery.
