Armed Bank Robbery in Cedar Rapids Updated: Monday, July 7 2014,
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS2/FOX28) —
For the second time in two weeks, a Cedar Rapids bank becomes the target of armed robbery. Police say a man walked into the Guaranty Bank Branch on Jacolyn Drive Northwest around 10 o’clock Monday morning
. The robber was wearing some sort of makeup to make his skin appear darker.
The Cedar Rapids Police Department says they have officers doing regular checks on these banks; they’re also working on several special initiatives with bank personnel. However, it hasn’t slowed these robbers down.
“It is a good neighborhood, definitely a good side of town to be on,” says resident Dustin Coppess. “Seems like no matter where you’re at anymore, something’s going down.”
I like how they briefly touched on his “make up”
