Bank Robbers Wrap Themselves in Aluminum Foil to Evade Security

Published

on

Two bank robbers who thought that wrapping their entire bodies in aluminum foil would render them invisible or undetectable to the banks security and alarm system are still on the run.

The bizarre plan actually worked and the alarm didn’t go off, which probably says more about the sophistication of the alarm system than the genius of the plan. However, they didn’t account for the fact that their disguises would not really work against humans watching them on CCTV monitoring screens.

Security saw the men crawling around the banks floor like a pair of metallic hedgehogs and immediately alerted the police, who sent and armed unit to respond.

The two men inside managed to escape but their lookout was captured and police are confident they will find the rest of the gang soon. The men did not get away with any cash from their failed heist.

The attempted robbery happened at Banco do Brasil in Santa Catarina in Brazil.

The local police spokesperson said

They wanted to make sure the alarms didn’t detect their presence by using the tin foil, but staff at the bank’s CCTV control HQ saw them moving around and alerted police.

“We searched the area and stopped people near the bank and found a suspect who was hiding in bushes and had a police record that we took in for questioning.”

So far no one has been arrested and there are no injured.

The explosion was not being treated as a terrorist attack, and there are no clues as to who was responsible yet.

“It is fair to believe that this is a consequence of the good police work we do,” police spokesman Patric Heimbrand told a news conference.

“We work in heavy criminal environments and some of them could be irritated. But to those I’d say that we cannot be influenced.”

There was a similar explosion which took place in Malmo on November 30, 2014, however that incident hasn’t been resolved.

Mr Lofven told Sweden’s TT news agency the blast was “extremely serious” and it was “an attack on our democracy”.

“Violence against police must never be accepted,” he was quoted as saying, adding that the fight against serious crime must be intensified “with stricter laws, better tools and increased resources to the police”.

Seven Schoolgirls and Two Women Sexually Harassed in London

Published

on

Seven schoolgirls have been sexually assaulted in the same place in London in three months.

Schoolgirls and Women Assaulted

Two women, of 27 and 25, and seven children aged 11 to 13, have been assaulted by a man who tried to get to them before running away.

CCTV recently released footage of a man connected to the attacks.

Superintendent Lee Hill of Greenwich Police said: “These incidents were very frightening for the victims. I am appealing to the public to help identify and locate this man as quickly as possible.

“Although none of the victims have suffered physical injury, the effects of becoming a victim of sexual assault can be lasting and traumatic.

“There is a possibility that these incidents are part of a linked series of attacks as a number of victims have provided very similar descriptions of the attacker – a white man aged between 40 to 50 years old, with short white or blonde hair. This is one line of inquiry detectives are exploring.”

Mr Hill also said: “I am concerned that there may be more victims who have not yet come forward and are not receiving the support that they may need. I would urge any victims who have not yet come forward to contact police.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
