I got a kick out of this story from today's paper:
Workers Foil Bank Robber; Passers-by Return His Loot
“As the man was leaving the bank, the teller shouted: ‘Stop him! He just robbed the bank!’ ” Mr. Browne said.
The technicians, who were repairing the bank’s A.T.M.s, heard the cry and gave chase, Mr. Browne said. The bank robber ran onto 38th Street, where traffic was at a standstill. As he wove between cars, the technicians grabbed him, the police said, and pushed him onto the hood of a vehicle.
When officers arrived, Mr. Browne said, one of the posse was holding the robber, while the other two were nearby, with a large crowd around them. The cash had scattered, some of it in a small pile between two cars. Pedestrians walked up to police officers or bank employees and handed over bills they had picked up, a witness and the police said.“Even in the bad economy, all $1,082 that had been scattered before the police arrived was recovered in full,” Mr. Browne said.
And on that happy note, have a great Thanksgiving, everyone!
