  1. if someone inside the bank would have had a private gun he could have done more than those extra long and exclusive to law enforcement weapons

    • If someone had had a gun people would have been shot and killed- the old man bank robber and possibly innocent bystanders. Since there was no gun, an old man got away with a few bucks- and he will likely get caught in days.

  2. When asked by the Wells Fargo bank teller why he chose to rob the bank with a cheap, flimsy surgical mask that barely hid his identity, the robber reportedly told the teller: “Dummy! Why do you think I’m robbing this bank?! I’ll tell you why. Because I’m trying to scrounge enough money to buy myself a top-of-the-line mask that will completely hide my face and my identity!”
    “In fact,” the robber added, “as soon as I’m done robbing this bank, I’m heading out to the store to purchase myself a REAL mask, and only then will I venture out to rob my 2cnd bank of the day.”
    “Hopefully, after the 2cnd bank robbery, I’ll have enough money to purchase myself a decent getaway car that will get me to the Mexican border quickly, where I’ll be safe from the police,” he said.
    Law enforcement officials later told reporters that they’ve obtained video footage from a local costume store where the suspect can be seen trying on various masks, including a batman mask and an IRS tax collector mask.”
    “The IRS tax collector mask is the ultimate robbers’ mask, I like it,” the thief can be heard muttering to himself.
    He chooses that mask and heads over to the checkout counter where he can be seen pulling out a stack of hundred dollar bills from an attache case emblazoned with the Wells Fargo logo.
    He then pulls out one of the hundred dollar bills from the stack, hands it over to the cashier as payment for the $60 mask, and asks the cashier for $40 dollars in change all in quarters.
    “I’m gonna need lots of quarters for the toll booths,” he tells the cashier. “There’ll be plenty of tolls to pay en route to the Mexican border.”
