2006_08_cargoshorts.jpgAn Independence Bank on East 86th Street was robbed of $2,470 in a day light heist by a twenty something couple. The male robber handed the teller a note saying he had a gun, intimated he had a gun in his clothes, and then got the money; his female accomplice, who wore a cloverleaf t-shirt and black leggings with flip-flops was the lookout. And when they got the money, they just walked away. The NY Post calls them the "Bonnie & Clyde" of the hipster set as they were wearing cargo shorts and flip-flops - while the NY Daily News finds that the male robber looks a lot like Ashton Kutcher (they have a picture, and he sort of does, as much as any young white guy with longish brown hair and some scruff, wearing sunglasses and a hat, can). While this might be an audacious robbery, this is nothing compared to the mom who made her 10 year old son rob a bank.

And that Independence branch is one of those without the floor-to-ceiling teller barriers - it's one of those "friendlier" bank branches that seem to be more popular to rob.
