    Glad to see a lively conversation going on our website! According to thereporteronline.com: "At approximately 1:51 a.m., a man entered the bank and brandished a silver semi-automatic pistol. He vaulted over the teller counter, and emptied the contents of the cash drawers into a plastic grocery bag that he had carried in. He then ran through the bank, and fled out the back door into the parking lot."According to media reports the man jumped the counter after pulling a gun, emptied the contents into plastic bags he brought with him and ran out the back door. I have placed a call to the Philly FBI office and will try to clarify what exactly happened and if any security video of the suspect was captured.

    Sorry. That this bothers me that it was incorrect. It is just that someone VERY close to me was there. I guess someone messed it up at thereporteronline to begin with. Just needed to say make a note somewhere that it was incorrect.Just makes me feel better that something so tragic be noted correctly. Anonymous.
