Black Hat Bandits Strike Again, Leave a Possible Clue

The criminals have hit eight banks this year.

But this time, the group may have left behind a key clue: possible footprints.

A bystander called police from outside the bank, but by the time police arrived the pair had escaped, reportedly speeding off in a getaway car driven by a third suspect.

In at least one case, they put a gun to a customer’s head.

In Monday’s robbery, authorities were able to preserve possible footprints in the snow using cardboard boxes, later casting a mold. Authorities are hopeful that the footprints will help them solve the case. The FBI is also offering a $30,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the bank robbers.
