Hasn't this happened there before? It's close to the freeway, they need a guard.

I thought this branch had a guard. They certainly are glass enclosed so how did this happen?

The bank will not allow a customer to take a bullet to prevent a robbery. Threaten a customer and they just pass the loot through a hole in the glass. That branch is spooky with all that glass.

I agree it is spooky. Was more friendly when they had the security cubicals to go thru to get into the bank.
