Some guy recently took a taxi home from robbing a bank in Denver. I found this odd, but ordinarily weird details about crimes wouldn’t be enough to pique my interest. However, I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop on this one.
After all, taking a taxi home from a bank robbery couldn’t have been smart. It seems likely that this will yield a clue that could result in an arrest. I don’t know if taxis in Denver have cameras, but I’m sure the driver saw the guy. I’m sure the driver at least knows where he was dropped off. It’s possible that this won’t immediately lead to the perpetrator, but it seems likely that it will. I think the only reason it hasn’t yet is because it happened so recently. If there’s a bonehead moment coming on this one, the other shoe just might not have dropped yet.
Frankly, it reminds me about the story of the guy who kept robbing the same bank on the same day of the week at the same time. Eventually, police figured out that he was taking a particular bus home and managed to apprehend him safely by waiting at the stop. I forget where I heard this, but I think it was a weird news thing as opposed to hearing it from a friend of a friend sort of thing, so I think this actually happened.
Regardless, I’m just waiting to hear something similar stupid here too. With a bank robber taking a taxi home? There almost has to be.
