Man Robs Rifle with A Handgun

Sorry. The headline was too tempting. Here’s the 411 on the 211 from the local website postindependent.com: “An armed gunman got away with an undisclosed amount of cash after robbing the American National Bank in Rifle [CO] Friday morning. It’s believed to be the first bank robbery in the history of Rifle . . . the suspect entered the bank and displayed a semi-automatic handgun. Police say that the suspect fled on foot and was last seen running west, away from the bank . . . Police warned residents that law enforcement officers may be visible in area neighborhoods. Police advise residents to be cautious and report any suspicious persons or activity to police. Police also advised residents to take precautions and keep their children inside.” Really? Bank robbers are more dangerous than pedophiles? Three words: man up Rifle!
