The First Citizens Bank at Walton Way and Wheeler Road was robbed this afternoon, and police believe the suspect is linked to other recent bank holdups.

Richmond County sheriff's deputies report a masked man dressed all in black and wearing surgical gloves came into the bank about 3:30 p.m. and demanded money. No gun was seen.

He fled the bank.

Sgt. Calvin Chew said there is a strong possiblity it is the same man involved in other robberies.

sueboo, pretty much. You get "robbery" training at pretty much any job, nowadays, and nearly every place tells you to do whatever the culprit says, even if you don't actually see a weapon.

Yeh, let the bank robbers go.

Yeh, let the bank robbers go. Don't hot pursuit fleeing cars. If we do accidentally catch a crook, give him a little fine and probation. Is there any wonder why no one is afraid to do all kinds of crime now. It is like a no risk thing. Why not? Nobody is going to try to stop you and they probably won't try to catch you and if they do accidentally catch you there is little or no chance you are going to jail. Our social attitudes have progressed so far, so fast, that we finally caught up with our butt and our head got stuck you know where.

I went into a Wachovia today

I went into a Wachovia today and demanded money and they gave it to me. I guess I should have demanded that they give it to me from somebody ELSE'S account.
