Yesterday a reader tweeted to @PoPVille that he thought there was a bank robbery in NoMa which leads to a pretty cool Props to the Cops:
Most police officers go through an entire 25 year career without arresting a bank robber.
At noon today, Captain Marvin Lyons and Sergeant Randy Griffin, both of the Fifth District, were in the 1200 block of 1st St., NE when a man walking nearby suddenly had the backpack in this hand explode in red paint–the dye pack an alert teller had inserted into the robber’s bag along with the cash.
Capt. Lyons and Sgt. Griffin were able to subdue the suspect and arrest the man, who had just robbed the TD Bank across the street.
Streets in the nearby area were closed until 2:30 as we examined the getaway bag and a bag inside the bank that the robber had left behind.
We are happy to report that the quick actions of these two officers put a dramatic finish to the bank robbery, and their actions are certainly worthy of high praise.
