Just before 7 a.m. yesterday, two suspects donning Halloween masks robbed the U.S. Bank on the 2800 block of Rice Street in Little Canada.
The men entered the bank as it opened and forced employees to take cash out of a locked vault and put it into a bag, telling them, "Don't be a hero, it's not your money," the Pioneer Press, citing information from the FBI, reports.
Witnesses described both suspects as black, one about 5-9, the other about 6-0. It's unclear whether they were armed and how much money they made off with, but U.S. Bank is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to arrests.
Authorities ask anyone who knows anything to call the local branch of the FBI at 763-569-8000.
One of our old friends, Andrew Henderson, was returning to his Little Canada home from work yesterday morning when he saw a bunch of police vehicles in the bank's parking lot. He stopped to shoot some photos and videos, including this clip of a suspicious investigator asking him for identification:
As Henderson points out in that clip, that interaction with an investigator occurred on the two-year anniversary of him getting arrested and his camera confiscated for filming paramedics and deputies loading a mentally disturbed, handcuffed man into the back of an ambulance in a public space outside his residential building. With the ACLU's help, Henderson was acquitted of all charges in connection with that incident earlier this year.
