[April 01, 2010]  MANISTEE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Maybe duct tape doesn't work for everything. Police said an 18-year-old Cadillac man who fastened duct tape to the bottom of his shoes in an attempt to conceal the robbery of a northern Michigan business has been arrested.

Manistee County sheriff officials said the man admitted robbing All Star Pay Day Loans in Manistee Township, about 210 miles northwest of Detroit. He was arrested about 3:35 a.m. Thursday after being spotted by deputies.

Police told the Ludington Daily News and WWMT-TV the man was wearing dark clothing and carrying about $1,200 in cash.

The man was being held at the Manistee County Jail. He faces charges including breaking and entering with intent, a 10-year felony.
