    Lets hope that the robber stays out of Lansing. The LPD would NEVER find the man if he waited in the bank for them to show up. Thank god we still have The sheriffs departments and the Michigan State Police to take care of crime. LPD needs ALL the help they can get!

    I don't think this will be the last attempt in the area. Maybe not a bank but people are so depressed over the economy, loss of jobs, loss of homes and having to either become homeless or move in with friends or family. Yes this guy should be caught and punished for what he did. Also think of that poor teller who had to go through this. She needs a huge pat on the back for being so brave. This is a small community so it was some what of a shock that this could happen in our town that we live in, work in and go to school in. We all just need to help each other during had times as much as possible. I truly believe that what goes around will come back to you some day and he will get caught sooner or later.

    This can end up someone in prison.Free room and board as many have no job in MI.Could be someone who has bills to pay and don't want to loose home or see their family homeless?Could be just about anyone now a days with no jobs in Mich to put all to work.Crimes as such will get worse.It hasn't got as bad as during the great depression.In mich it could be worse than that because the population is so many more than back in history.The whole USA is suffering because NO one stopped jobs from leaving this country.States like MI is really bad.More go into poverty and don't get the help needed.There are those who really don't get what people are going through.It is very serious and can lead to many bad things for many.

    Why don't you blow up the picture and display it so someone will recognize him?

    My guess is that he wants to get caught.
