Yikes, almost sent my husband into the robbery. He had business at 2 banks, so I told him to skip US Bank & I’d do the US Bank deposit on Wed.
Hope he didn’t get my forty bucks !!
Jake, your story is the only source talking about that much cash being taken. There’s not near that much along a typical teller line, and he didn’t go to the vault. How did you confirm that?
Fake facial hair
Jake, looks like you had that right after all. Apparently the perp managed to hold the branch manager quasi-hostage in order to get to the vault and the big dollars. Was in there clpse to an hour(?). Quite a story yet to be told.
Still out there!
Looks like Christmas came a little late for that gentleman.
I’m thinking he looks an awful lot like ‘Jamie’ on the “Mythbusters” TV show… Hey, we’re here to help!
