Dye-stained bills lead to arrest: A Michigan man has been arrested after money stolen in a bank robbery and covered in red dye was used at a southwest Michigan strip club. Southfield police say 37-year-old Todd Kettler of Rochester was arraigned Tuesday on armed robbery and gun charges in connection with an Oct. 4 bank holdup.

Dye packs are used by banks to track down money taken during robberies. The packs explode, spewing dye on the cash and suspect.
