  • Wasn’t this bank robbed a few months ago? How does one even execute a bank robbery these days???

  • Good to see this bank has clear security cameras.

  • I’m baffled as to how a bank is robbed in DC in this day and age. Looking at the (remarkably clear) video still, you can see the teller would be behind 2″ think bullet-proof glass and there is no way to angle a gun in there. Are the tellers instructed to turn over cash to anyone demanding it?

  • This is a terrible terrible crime. I’m talking about the use of the word “CoHeights,” obviously.
    Also saddened to about the bank robbery.

  • Yes tellers are instructed to hand over the cash once a demand is made. It is not worth putting anyone’s life at risk to resist. Although the tellers may be safer behind the glass there may be customers or other bank employees in the lobby.

  • What kind of sorry excuse for a disguise is that? Clearly, the best way to rob a bank is while wearing a mask that conspicuously disguises you as a former president of the United States. Then, you can make your escape by skydiving to an undisclosed location in the desert. Amateur.

  • Utah…. get me two!
