Looks like we've got some more "local talent" to add to the list...
of all the places to try to grab and steal a handful of cash...
I would have to think a bank would be the last one...
I guess the only comfort is you know the tellers wont shoot you

FRENCHTOWN TOWNSHIP – Investigators are on the trail of a bank robber who snatched cash from a teller Monday afternoon at a Flagstar branch in a strip mall across from Walmart.
Monroe County Sheriff’s Detective Dave Davison said this morning he was in the process of tracking down a suspect.
“We have him identified,” Detective Davison said.
Today a warrant was issued naming Joseph E. Neville, 27, of Monroe as the suspect.
On Monday shortly before 4 p.m. a man walked into the branch on N. Telegraph Rd. and stood there for a moment. A teller asked if he needed help when the robber suddenly reached over the counter and grabbed a handful of cash that was being counted by another teller.
The man then ran out the door and got into a 1996 dark green Jeep Cherokee and sped off. Before he pulled away, bank employees were able to get a license plate number. The suspect did not try to conceal his identity, said nothing to the tellers and did not imply that he had a weapon, said Detective Brian Sroka.
Detective Davison said the suspect has had prior police contact, but he was not believed to be involved with other bank robberies.
There were four employees in the bank and no customers at the time of the robbery. At the bank after the incident, a sign was posted on the glass door notifying customers that the branch was temporarily closed. It reopened this morning.
An FBI agent was at the scene to assist in the investigation.
