Three days later, Honesdale police were supplied with a copy of a handwritten letter that Steven wrote to his sister a few years ago. The handwriting on the letter appeared very similar to the handwriting on the bank robbery note.

Steven was apprehended by the Secaucus, NJ Police Department for extradition to Pennsylvania.

District Attorney Edwards said that the police work done by the Honesdale Borough Police Department was exceptional and led to the positive identification and subsequent arrest of a man who terrorized the employees at Citizens Bank two weeks ago.
