Hey Meridian, How Did This Guy Rob Your Bank?
An older, unarmed man walked into a Meridian bank on Monday morning and demanded an undisclosed amount of money. While it's protocol for bank tellers to comply with these requests, we're surprised the robber ACTUALLY got away from the scene of the crime. Was there no security? Could police not show up in time?
The Meridian Police Department is asking for the public's help identifying a man who robbed a bank in Meridian Monday morning.
Officers were called out to the Bank of the West at 1630 South Wells Avenue in Meridian at 10:59 a.m.
According to police, the robber handed a teller a note indicating he had a weapon, and demanding money.
The man ended up escaping with some cold hard cash. Here's the thing, and I mean no disrespect to anybody especially the bank tellers, they did what they were trained to do but how does an old guy rob a bank and actually get away in 2018? I mean, take a second to look at his pictures. The guy must be pushing 65. How fast could he have run out of the bank? I know bank robberies are traumatic for the employees and tellers involved (again this is NOT directed at them) but judging by the surveillance pictures this guy wasn't going anywhere fast.
