The criminal mind

The FBI is sending word around to banks and law enforcement agencies about a new wrinkle in the bank robbery game, observed in the robbery of an Arvest branch on Grant Street in the Heights last week.

In the "armed takeover robbery," an FBI dispatch says, bank employees were ambushed on opening the bank by two men who'd been in hiding. One was in a rolling city garbage bin (pictured), modified by a slice down the side so that the man inside could look out and also be able to make a quick exit to pounce on his victims.

You have been warned. The trash in one of those dumpsters might be the human kind.
