Vancouver WA: robbers grabbing bank deposit bags



VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — It’s one thing to rob a bank once the money’s already in it. But twice in recent days, Vancouver, Wash., police say a male robber has grabbed a bank deposit bag from someone about to make a deposit.

Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp says on Monday, the victim was in the lobby of a Bank of America branch when a man ran up, grabbed the bag and ran off. On Friday, a robber ran up to the driver’s side window of a woman preparing to make a deposit at a US Bank drive-through, grabbed that deposit bag and fled.

Police say they don’t know whether the incidents are related.
