Real life Robin Hood Right here. They figured they were busted and just started throwing money to the poor people. Beautiful!!!!
SOUTH LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Bank robbery suspects were taken into custody in South Los Angeles after a wild chase across the Southland during which they threw money out the window.
Authorities say the suspects were believed to be behind a Bank of America robbery on Soledad Canyon in Santa Clarita just after 10 a.m. Wednesday.
Police chased the suspects from Santa Clarita all the way to South L.A., where a suspect in the backseat was seen throwing handfuls of money out the window. Residents were seen running out to pick up the cash, even running into the street in front of police vehicles.
The suspects' vehicle was stopped in the area of Kansas and Vernon avenues at 11:23 a.m. when a silver truck blocked their way. Deputies immediately pulled both suspects out of the vehicle.
A large crowd of people surrounded deputies, forcing them to request additional units for crowd control. Residents were clapping and waving at the suspects.
An ongoing search is under way for at least two more suspects who jumped out of the SUV in the Sylmar area. Police say a perimeter has been set up.Real life Robin Hood Right here. They figured they were busted and just started... more

Bank of America robbery turns to friendly protest "banks are corrupt, and those who control them are criminals,'"A 25-year-old Corte Madera man with a semi-automatic handgun who, according to police scanner transmissions wanted to “protest his concerns” with the Bank of America, took nine hostages — and then released them — during a bizarre five-and-a-half-hour standoff Monday at the bank's branch in Corte Madera.
"banks are corrupt, and those who control them are criminals,'" Tilton said.

Father identifies son as bank robber to police.
You're 18 year old Andrew Wright, and you might be pretty sure after an armed bank robbery for £900 that no witnesses will recognise you. Since, you went to the trouble of wearing a disguise made up of pinstripe suit and matching fedora hat, classy. Yet when the police released the CCTV footage you might be surprised, people in the mind set of Wright, that it would be your own father who identifies you to the police *audible gasp*.
"Police released CCTV images after the armed robbery last week - and they were seen by Wright's dad, Gary, who recognised his son.
Gary promptly took 18-year-old Andrew to the local police station so he could turn himself in."-MetroFather identifies son as bank robber to police. You're 18 year old Andrew... more

Was reading the story about the robber getting stuck trying to break into a building, but saw this lil gem of a story.
Bank robbers in Germany failed to rob a bank after they used too many explosives and fled the scene. Even though the explosion was huge and blew up what looks like half the building, the cash machine was left intact.
"The bank was reduced to a pile of rubble and its roof completely obliterated by the night-time explosion, while cars and buildings up to 100 metres away were damaged.Nobody is thought to have been injured in the blast. Police are still hunting for the culprits."-MetroWas reading the story about the robber getting stuck trying to break into a building,... more

Albert Bailey pictured above
Police in Connecticut say they had ample warning of a bank robbery because the two suspects called the bank ahead of time and told an employee to get a bag of money ready.
Police arrested 27-year-old Albert Bailey and an unidentified 16-year-old boy on robbery and threatening charges Tuesday afternoon at a People's United Bank branch in Fairfield.
Sgt. James Perez says the two Bridgeport residents showed up about 10 minutes after making the call and were met by police in the parking lot. Perez told the Connecticut Post the suspects were "not too bright."
It's not clear if Bailey and the teen have lawyers.

A former junior bank manager walked free from court today after being cleared of stealing nearly £1 million from a high street bank.
Wadsworth, of Archway, north London, was found not guilty of stealing £921,716.95 from Lloyds TSB between 2002 and 2007.
Keith 'Junior' Preddie, 30, of Romford, Essex, was found guilty of laundering £145,370.
Preddie, who had a £500-a-day drug habit at times, said he also spent money on BMW cars, holidays and a failed music business.
The Old Bailey was told that Wadsworth would walk out of the branch at Golders Green, north London, with bundles of £25,000, stolen while she was loading cash machines.
But none of the missing money was traced to her and she had been living modestly.
Her bank accounts were frequently in the red and she had taken out a couple of loans from the bank.
An expert on domestic abuse said Wadsworth showed signs of battered woman syndrome and 'learned helplessness'.
She had been with Preddie, described as being from the wrong side of the tracks, since she was 16.
But he left her in 2004 when he fell in love with another woman.
Wadsworth told the court that at the end of the relationship she was forced to steal larger amounts to 'pay him off'.
She told the court that she lived in fear of violence from Preddie and believed he would kill her or her family if she did not bring cash home.
Christopher Sallon QC, defending, said Preddie had used her 'like a cash cow'.
Wadsworth said: 'If I came home without it, I would get hurt. I would die. He would beat me up and if I didn't bring it, that would be an end of it.
'He told people I worked in the bank. He would say 'My baby is a supervisor in a bank'.'
Wadsworth said she 'felt a sense of relief' when she was arrested coming off a plane from Trinidad at Gatwick Airport in March 2007.
She was found out during a nationwide audit while she was on holiday and unable to cover-up.
Her new husband Damon Hoford and her parents had no idea about her double life.
Mortgage adviser Mr Hoford told police: 'After I found out about the thefts by Ania, I was devastated but loved her and wanted to stand by her.'
But she began to act out of character, coming home late and tipsy, after her arrest and they separated and later divorced.
Mr Hoford told the court they had always 'gone 50-50' with the bills and holidays.
He said Wadsworth had few material possessions when she moved into his flat.
Mr Hoford, who worked at the same branch, said they started going out together when the relationship with Preddie ended.
'She said if he came home drunk or if he used any drugs, he would just be rough with her,' Mr Hoford said.
Mr Hoford married the 'bubbly, extrovert and easy to get on with' junior manager in November 2004.
Detective Sergeant Suzanne Ferris of City of London Police said outside court: 'We found no evidence in her finances to show she had any gain.'

HADDONFIELD, N.J. (AP) -- Police say a bank was robbed in a South Jersey town just minutes after four of its five public schools received bomb threats.
Police say the bomb threats were called in to the schools one after another starting at 9:42 a.m. The schools were evacuated, and searches of the buildings found nothing amiss.
The robbery at a TD Bank branch came amid the hubbub. Authorities say a robber wearing a maroon ball cap and a long black wig showed up at about 10 a.m. and escaped with an undetermined amount of money.
In an e-mail to parents, school Superintendent Alan Fegley said it appeared the bomb threats were made as a diversion.
Police Chief John Manning said it might have been a coincidence. The threats also interrupted final exams.

SMYRNA, Ga. -- The getaway driver in a Cobb County bank robbery took his 3-year-old daughter along for the ride, Smyrna police said.
The robbery occurred at 11:32 a.m. Thursday at Regions Bank in the 800 block of Concord Road.
Police pulled over the suspect's gray Dodge Avenger on South Cobb Drive.
Initially, police said they weren't sure that the driver was involved because he had a child in the car.
The vehicle was towed to police headquarters for further investigation and also because the driver had a suspended license and no insurance, police said.
That's when things took a turn.
The tow truck driver told police he saw a man he believed got out of the trunk of the car and then ran away.
Police tried several times to open the trunk of the car at the scene but said they were unable to.
Channel 2 Action News reporter Tom Jones spoke with bank customers who were stunned by the incident.
“That is sad to say the least,” one man told Jones.
The bank robber was still at large Thursday evening, police said. Police believe the gunman is armed and dangerous.

Two Girls, one 14-16-Years-Old, the other as Young as 12, Allegedly Stole from Ohio Bank
(AP) Police in suburban Cincinnati are searching for bank robbery suspects described as two juvenile girls.
The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office says a robbery was reported Tuesday afternoon at the First National Bank in Symmes Township, northeast of Cincinnati.
Authorities report the suspects were described as two girls, one 14-16 years old and the other possibly as young as 12.
Authorities say they didn't appear to have any weapons and left with so-called "bait money," which can be easily identified as from the bank.

Carson is accused of robbing a Wells Fargo bank in suburban Apple Valley on Wednesday, when $4,580 was taken. Court papers say Carson confessed to that robbery and admitted others in Dakota and Hennepin counties.
Magistrate Judge Jeanne Graham appointed a public defender for Carson, noting he was carrying "quite a bit of debt." Carson did not respond to the charges at the hearing except to say he understood them.

Jackie Ramos, a former "customer advocate" from the collections department at Bank of America (BAC), posted a video on YouTube in which she offered an inside glimpse into what happens on the other end of the phone. While Ramos notes that her former employer encouraged her to "do the right thing for the customer," she says she soon came to realize that her job was actually to squeeze as much money as possible from the company's cardholders.
In her video, Ramos describes the strategies that Bank of America used to maximize its profitability. From charging a $15 "convenience fee" for payments over the phone to tacking on $39 late fees and $39 overlimit fees, Ramos says her bosses encouraged her to nickel-and-dime customers, drawing out every penny possible.
