If he was recognized in March, why was he still free in May?

Brown was arrested in the parking lot of his fire station Monday and was released on a $50,000 bond two days later, Shoemake said.

Just curious but I wonder if he used any of the $320K he stole to post his bond.

Marvin, is that you?

All told, the fact that managed to steal $320K in 2 robberies actually means that he was a very successful bank robber, most don't make off with even a 10th of that amount . Getting caught was his only amateur move.

He probably would not have gotten caught if he didn't rob the bank that he uses. That was his amateur move.

I was on a jury for a bank robbery case years ago.

The robbery happened early in the morning when the bank was closed and the armored car guy came to service the ATMs and put money in them. A guy who knew how the whole system worked held him at gun point and took a bunch of cash. Turns out the victim knew the robber because he had been the employee that had trained him how to do his job and then later got fired.

The robber ended up accidentally locking himself out of the bank with the employee stuck inside. He tried to get back in but couldn't. I still believe he wanted to get back in to kill the guy because he knew that the victim knew him.

The police picked him up later in his car with bunches of cash on him.

End result - hung jury. Some super idiots on that jury just refused to find him guilty no matter what.

I thought banks nowadays used drop safes. No money out unless its rung in by a teller. Serviced buy the same companies that service ATM machines <snark>.

320k seems like a huge amount of money for a bank robbery.  Like.... someone was in on it with him amount of money.

Aren't most bank robberies well under $10k take?

They put him on leave?    He was robbing banks on his own time.

Most bank robberies are under $1k.  Tellers have drawer limits, and cash machines can't be opened by the teller.  This guy had to have hit a cash shipment when the armored car arrives, or he hit the branch's cash vault.

A clever thief, foiled by the Ministry of Silly Walks.
