  1. The robbers allegedly smashed the windscreen of the vehicle that was used to get away with the money . Did the robbers stopped to smash the windscreen before they took of with the money ? why would they stop to smash the windscreen of vehicle that they are getting away in ? Sounds like poor planning of a robbery to me , and sounds and smells and taste very fishy too . According to this the Banks could keep alot more of their profits if they hired more than A security guard . And why are money coming or going at the Bank at that hour of the morning ?
    Cayman Compass are you sure that the Bank was robbed ?
