Serial Bank Robber Sought by FBI After 11-Scores in a Row

WHOA!

We all love a good caper don’t we?  The heist of the week, or some other equally-as-benign tale of overachieving criminals.

This is why Ocean’s Eleven is popular.  Andy why James Bond is a thing.  We love the seat of your pants suave of the infallible character.  Its the sort of suspension of disbelief that you carry through any movie with Indiana Jones in it. It’s the blind faith that, no matter what, our antagonist is going to get away with it.

But, back in real life, there are times in which the bad guy falls into such a fortuitous, rhythmic loop.

The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of a serial bank robber believed to be responsible for 11 heists across Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Vermont.

The unidentified suspect was nicknamed the “Route 91 Bandit” after committing the robberies in various cities and towns along the I-91 corridor, which stretches 290 miles north to south from Connecticut to Vermont, the FBI said.

The agency warned that the suspect has threatened the use of a gun and should be considered armed and dangerous.

His trouble was widespread.

“He’s robbed 11 banks via note, has threatened a weapon in many of them and tried to gain access to a vault in many of the robberies,” FBI Boston Supervisory Special Agent Christian Fierabend told WMUR-TV.

The robberies span from Sept. 9 to Jan. 27.

Photos of the Route 91 Bandit have blanketed the internet of late, and those who may come in contact with him are advised to treat him as though he is armed and dangerous.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
