    the CH robbery is the work of the serial robber from Durham & Raleigh. The other one is a white male, ordered everyone into the vault. Thank God no one was hurt, I used to work at the one in Hillsborough and still have friends there.

    At least they finally caught the energizer bunny yesterday in Hillsborough. He was charged with battery and released on bond.

    I wonder if it is the same guy that is suspected of five or six bank robberies in Raleigh & Durham.

    luckn4u2: What in the world are you talking about? People rob banks whether the economy is good and bad. There's no excuse for doing something that is wrong like that.

    Yes, these bank robberies are all the governor's fault!

    It's going to get worse, especially when you have a governor who doesn't live in the working man/womans world..
