But bike bank robbers?
This guy is either really smart or just too broke to have a car. You can check the terrain around the bank on Google Maps
, it looks like someone on a bike would have more options for getting away — a quick dash to the east would bring him into a wooded residential zone or he could go west and cut across the sea of parking lots and businesses standing between the bank and highway.
Whatever he was, smart or broke, he ended up getting away.
I guess if you're going to rob a bank, it's better to do it on a bike. Even villains and bad guys should be greening up their operations, right?
