Drive-through robber gets bank loot - Yahoo! News
CHICAGO (Reuters) - That was easy.
A bank robber behind the wheel of his car on Tuesday sent a note through a vacuum tube to the teller at the drive-through window at a branch of Chicago's LaSalle Bank and the teller obliged, returning an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.
The exchange was completed through the bank's pneumatic tube communications system, in which canisters are passed back and forth between motorist and teller.
The FBI said it was investigating the drive-through theft.
WHAT? Are you kidding me? Are we so lazy in this country that we are now doing drive through robberies? I mean, get out of the stinking car, walk up to the teller and get the damn money (pardon my French...actually English, the french have been abused a lot). What happened to the good old days when we did it like the Italian Job. Plus that teller needs to be fired and looked into as an accomplice because there is no way any sane person goes through with it. WHAT? I can't get over this one. Oh well, I will. Arrggghhh.
