CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — A bank robber who left a trail of cash as he ran from the scene of the crime has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch ( ) reports that 41-year-old Cameron Boddie of Dellwood pleaded guilty and was sentenced Wednesday.

Authorities say Boddie dropped thousands of dollars in cash as he fled a Commerce Bank branch in University City on Feb. 25, 2015. Bills were found on a sidewalk, on streets and in a stairwell. Dogs and the dropped money helped authorities track down the robber in Clayton, where Boddie was arrested near a parking garage.

Police say Boddie had only about $100 in $1 bills left on him.
