Maybe if the tellers were armed these wouldn't happen?

Looks like it may be the same guy (same build, height, weight) that robbed the First Federal in Wrightstown. Would be interesting to know if this guy taped the latex gloves around his wrists as well, just like the Wrightstown guy did. Either way since he keeps getting away with it he'll probably wait a bit, make up a new outfit, then go after another local bank that's away from busier towns where police are closer. Wish they could put tracking devices between the money, when its bundled in big amounts like that & not being used. http://newtown-pa.patch.com/articles/armed-and-dangerous-bank-robbery-suspect-at-large#photo-11534408
