Bank Robbery

8:30 pm at a deserted Bank of America ATM: as I drove into the parking lot, what I saw made my hair stand up. An old windowless car was the only one in the parking lot. Two people were dragging sacks of something hurriedly into that car. That made it look like a text book bank robbery, except they weren't wearing any masks, nor holding guns up in the air. Looking at the volume of the bag it looked like they would have emptied millions of dollars. Our robbers then accelerated past me, innocently smiling at me. They looked like senior citizens burgling banks for fun!

I got down the car and went towards an ATM and there is no sign of breakage or forced entry; all lights were on inside the bank and the scene looked perfectly normal.

What our thieves looted wasn't bank but the trash container!! It was completely empty as if the trash was cleaned up.
Either they were from a garbage pickup company which used cars instead of garbage trucks or they were the identity thieves trying to piece together account details from ATM receipts, or merely garbage thieves hoping to make money at the recycling unit. One thing for sure, I'll go get a good paper shredder tomorrow!
