Robbery 201: Earth-friendly bank robbing

Robbery 201: Earth-friendly bank robbing

Read on about robbers who apparently aced the class...

April 22, 2010: No get away car for this guy! After robbing a bank just a mile from my house, he hopped onto a city bus conveniently pulling up just outside the bank. Rode it for a few minutes, before getting off at the transfer station (about half a mile from my house). He was later spotted walking not a quarter mile from my house, but has apparently disappeared and is still at large.

April 6, 2007: Robber values exercise almost more than money! He must have had his Schwinn recently tuned up because he robbed a bank (again, not half a mile from our house when we were living in Michigan), then hopped on his bike for his Great Escape. Didn't work out so well since he fell off his bike and lost the money. He did have the presence of mind to get back on his bike and ride away. Police couldn't track him down.

April 7, 2007: This same exercise-loving and persistent robber rode his bike back to the same bank and robbed it again! Practice apparently makes perfect because he, his red Schwinn and the money all vanished. Presumably to join the Tour de France.

These dudes might not be the brightest bulbs in the pack, but at least they're fluorescent!

Why did I think that was all so funny?

Reminded me about a robber that I heard about on the news last night... who got got chased down by a witness and was pinned under their car after they ran him over.

The witness is charged with attempted murder.
