HARLAN, Ky. (AP) -- Police say an eastern Kentucky man walked out of a radio station with thousands of dollars in a bank bag, but it may have been his quest for a car that got him caught.

Harlan Police Chief Mike Thomas told WYMT-TV in Hazard that 24-year-old James Daniel Bailey walked into WTUK on Tuesday and left with a bank bag stuffed with cash.

Radio station manager Jeff Capps says he stepped out of the office when it came and went.

Police say they found Bailey at Austin's Car Lot in Rosspoint putting a down payment on a vehicle.

Police say they recovered almost all of the money.

Bailey is in the Harlan County Detention Center. Jail records did not list an attorney for Bailey.
