Easy withdrawals from the Bank of America on West Main

From yesterday’s New Britain Herald:

 A brazen bank robber pulled off a drive-through heist at the Bank of America on West Main Street Monday afternoon by making a “significant threat of violence,” police said.

Police declined to comment on the threat the man in a small blue car made, but he implied he had a weapon and said he would harm employees if his demands weren’t met.

“It was a significant threat of violence to the employees,” Lt. James Wardwell said. “No weapon was displayed, but the teller took the threat seriously.”

The robber pulled up to the drive-through on the side of the building around 1:44 p.m. and handed the teller a note demanding money, Wardwell said. He drove off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

No one was harmed during the incident. Wardwell said drive-through bank robberies are very rare. Police have the note that was given to the teller, he said.

I bet drive-through robberies become a lot more common once word gets out that you don’t even have to flash your weapon!
