    Strange. The tellers at my bank in Cameron Village said they caught the guy that did it a few blocks away with dye all over him from stolen money bag.

    Oh, and BTW...They ALWAYS have more than one teller, and several other customer service associates at the branch. They might not all be there handling customers at the teller windows, but they are there.

    I'm confused as to why this article doesnt include a picture from the bank's security camera, there has to be one.

    Photo's would be nice, if they got any.

    They usually only have one teller working at each branch. I always thought that was a safety issue, while I was waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting to.... I forgot what I was standing in line waiting for.
    I hope they catch the guy or girl, we need a better description.
