    They may have "gotten away" but they sure didn't get very far!

    Nice quick work Cary PD!!

    Sad that a 16 year old seems to be involved.

    It's not the first bank robbery in Cary. Remember the one where the woman was at the ATM by the Bank of America by Cary Town Center? Unfortunately, it happens everywhere.

    Typical. Even an event that could have resulted in injury or loss of life is fair game for Cary bashing. tsk tsk

    How is the bank supposed to stop the robbery Dark_Horse? I'm not going to challenge someone that says they have a gun, I'm going to give them the money.

    Ya know, we never hear about an ATTEMPTED bank robbery. They ALWAYS get away in this area. What's the deal?
