Police in Nashville, Tennessee say they have arrested a former member of the Rock group, The Monkey Puzzles, who earned their way back in the 1970's by copying the earlier band, The Monkees.

Having fallen on hard times of late, Phillip Morse who once made millions while singing such hit songs as "The Last Waltz To Paris" and "Wetdream Believer" and also appearing in cigarette commercials, was arrested for a recent string of bank hold-ups.

Nashville police were getting nowhere, when they got two convincing tips, the first from a rabbi's son who worked as a cashier at the latest bank that had been held up.

"All the guy said was that the robber, although wearing a stocking over his face, really dressed well, with a nice expensive black & white shirt and white tie", stated Nashville officer Hennessee.

"That rang a bell. Actually, it was a false alarm when someone triggered it by moving the wrong stack of money or something. But the bell got me to thinking about the first bank robber dressing like a bum, then was described as "trendy" and now it was as "expensive".

Next the police began to check the local cleaners, and sure enough, someone had brought in two really expensive striped shirts lately and when Officer Hennessee went to the cleaners and checked the shirt not yet cleaned, there was a hold-up note in the pocket.

Phillip Morse was then brought in and identified by the cleaner's owner and Officer Hennessee from Nashville, Tennessee was able to leave the Cleaner's with his collar.
