    Man, this bank hasn't been there long has it? Maybe a year or so? Hope they catch him.

    terribletaste - Ha ha! My sentiments exactly!

    luckn4u2 - You clearly don't understand who the victims are of bank robberies - and you also clearly have never been the victim of a crime, or else your attitude would be different. And just for the record, it's not Meg Philips, it's Meg Scott PHIPPS. Next time you want to go on a political tirade, at least know what you're talking about.

    Why do you have to turn this tragedy into a political statement? I bet it was you who robbed the bank. :)

    luckn4u2, maybe you need to come and sit in a teller chair and be the one who gets the note not knowing if they are about to pull a gun and blow your brains out if you make one mistake

    I hope he gets away,the democrats are robbing the taxpayers of nc and get away with it,so if a person choses to take a chance and go for it, then I wish them well.The Jim Blacks,Meg Philips,etc can rob this state of funds that are meant for the taxpayers,then what difference is that of someone handing a teller a note.Sure they were caught, but what if they hadn't been..

    It is a shame. I was waiting for my husband in the car over at Lowes Food when this happened. I didn't see guy or car they looking for. I hope they catch this person.

    that's why I never go in banks, especially when most things can be done online. It's only scary if your in the bank when it happens.
