Robber messes on all four robberies in a day
Must be a trainee! A white male in UK, who entered a Bradford and Bingley branch in Doncaster, robbed the cashier at gunpoint. As he fled the building, a security device in the package sprayed all the notes purple. Realizing this, the man left the package on the floor. After about an hour, an offender was spotted (rather filmed) standing in queue for 20 minutes in the Halifax building society before showing his weapon and grabbing money from a cashier. After some time a man attempted to rob a taxi driver, who apparently got off the moving vehicle-which then collided with a road signage. The same day a Group 4 security officer reported an attempted robbery by a man brandishing a gun. The security man was making a cash delivery to the Co-Op store in Conisbrough. All four attempts were made by a man of similar description, who carried a handgun-like-weapon. Police, investigating into the marathon attempts, are asking for witnesses to show up.
