      One would think there would be a security guard on duty after all these bank robberies; and that there would be a system whereby the tellers alert the guards with a button or something. Glad no one was hurt.

      I’ve lived in the building where that Chase Bank is for 20 years. It doesn’t matter which brand it is – but someone tries to rob it every couple of years – usually twice – and then nothing for several years. I wonder if it’s related to a particular planetary alignment 🙂
