LAYTON, Utah (AP) - Utah police believe they've identified a young man who robbed a Layton bank while disguised as an old man.

Theft and aggravated robbery charges were filed Wednesday against 19-year-old Brad Stelling of Roy. The Standard-Examiner reports Layton police also filed a warrant for Stelling's arrest.

Witnesses say a man wearing a baseball cap and an old man mask went into the Fresh Market grocery store Nov. 18 and robbed a Wells Fargo inside.

A confidential informant later told police Stelling was bragging about the robbery and said he wore an old man mask he bought on eBay.

Authorities subpoenaed Stelling's eBay records and found he'd purchased a mask before the robbery that matched surveillance photos.

Police recovered a hat near the crime scene that tested positive for Stelling's DNA.
