    Just heard from a friend who lives there: PNC bank was robbed, cops recovered gun and money in the alley between Columbia and Lanier. Don’t know if they caught the perpetrators.

    The SunTrust on Pennsylvania SE was robbed last week.

    with all the cameras and currency tracking abilities out there, you’d think there would be better targets for robbery. But these people aren’t exactly top thinkers.

    Both of these banks have bank lines outside of them. I’m not saying, I’m just saying.
