Stealing From Deposit Boxes With Fishing Wire And Hooks

Some probably desperate and broke robber is trying to steal money from deposit boxes (in ATM machines) using fishing wire and hooks in Rio Rancho.

Rio Rancho police spokesperson John Francis said the man took fishing wire and fishing hooks to drop down deposit boxes to try to reel in money bags. Bank employees who would empty the deposit boxes the next morning told police they’d find the hooks and wires and that’s what tipped them off to look at their surveillance video.

Cameras at the Bank of America at High Resort recorded their suspect driving up in an older, white Chevy Suburban with red stripes on the side, opening the deposit box and going fishing.

High Class Bank Robbers In Rio Rancho

A bank robber dressed in a pin striped suit tried to rob a Bank Of America on Country Club and Southern Blvd in Rio Rancho on Friday.

He apparently changed his mind and took back his note and money bag. It takes a much higher class of person to rob a bank now a days.
