A man sipping a beer and counting a 'wad of money' matches witnesses' descriptions from a bank robbery across the parking lot.

A bank robbery suspect was arrested after he strolled to a bar across the parking lot, ordered a beer and started counting "a wad of money," Huntington Beach police said Thursday.

Ronald Langdale, 58, of Los Angeles had taken only a few sips of his beer when officers walked into Mario's Restaurant, tapped him on the shoulder and led him to a waiting squad car, police said.

Minus the tab for the beer, all the money was recovered, police said.
