Schiff: Did you every wonder about why a person
would go into a bank and commit a robbery? A bank-where
cameras are rolling 24/7
Clenney: It does seem crazy that someone would
want to go in and try to hold up a place where
cameras are running constantly.
special agent Dawn Clenney at the FBI's Detroit
Clenney: In their mind it's the least of their
thoughts that there could be a camera running
because when they need the money they need it
right then and they want it right then.
Clenney says that the FBI works with local and
state authorities throughout Michigan making the
chances slim for a successful holdup.
Clenney: The arrest and conviction rate out here
is around seventy percent or above and you just
have to keep in mind for those people that are
thinking about committing a bank robbery that
someone will always recognize you.
Police and the FBI suggest that if you're in a
bank when robbers come in, do as they say. Don't
be a hero. I'm Neal Schiff and that's what's happening
at the "FBI. This Week."
