Valuable Lessons in Bank Robbery

Do not stand in front of the ATM while you are waiting around to snatch someone's deposit.

The King County Sheriff's Office sent out the above photo this morning. The office is looking for the man, described as Hispanic, standing about 5-feet-6-inches, after he snatched the bank deposit bag from a 61-year-old bringing in the money from a nearby deli. The victim gave chase but couldn't catch the perp.

The incident happened at a Seatac Bank of America on November 21 and might have been the perfect crime. I've always wondered why people rob bank tellers what with the impressively clear teller cams. Except the suspect waited around for someone making a deposit in front of the ATM. Those machines also have cameras. Criminals, consider yourselves warned.
