Second man arrested in robbery. Looking for more robbers, so apparently the smart one of the group has still has the cash.

Second guy turned himself in. So what was the plan? Didn't realize banks have cameras?

Yikes. That fight was ugly. I hope the woman recovers and all four thugs spend a long time in prison.

One of the comments to the online news article
Bail set at 75k. The exact amount she tried to steal. The judge has a sense of humor.

This story reminds me of the Charlie Robison song "Desperate Times." Give it a listen sometime.

A Bandera, Texas boy goes to the US Army, joins the San Antone police, then cooks up a plan with
his wife to rob the Texas Commerce Bank where she works. He hides the cash at his mother's house
in Bandera, but the cops questioning his wife break her down, and he gets arrested.

Arms discourage and keep the invader in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property...
Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of them.

Attempted robbery. The woman held onto the bag.
