DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) _ A man wanted in several holdups appears to be working on his penmanship.

Police have been looking for the man since Sept. 9, when he handed a note to the clerk at a convenience store. The clerk said he could not make out the words. The man threatened to shoot the clerk and got away with $50

Capt. Dave Heesch said the man’s handwriting apparently has improved because clerks in three more holdups over the next five days had no problem reading his note.
