This would have been really embarrassing. An alarm went off at a bank, so cops showed up. They saw what looked like a figure standing inside. The blinds were drawn so it was hard to see. They started yelling at the figure through bullhorns, then tried to phone inside. they sealed off the area and evacuated a bunch of people from nearby apartments. When they could get no response, they forced their way in and addressed…a full-sized cardboard figure! this was after 90 minutes of evacuating, talking, yelling and sealing off the area.
What I can’t figure out is whether the real robbers actually took anything. That wasn’t mentioned. It was a slick plan, that’s for sure, and I’m sure some cops are very pissed off right now.
