A bank robber made off with about NT$235,000 today from CitiBank in Luodong, Yilan County, and police are searching for suspects, UDN reported. The bank heist occurred at around 3:20 this afternoon, according to police.
It took the criminal about three minutes to steal the cash from behind the counter before making off on a motorbike. The bank robber, who was wearing a cap and mask, allegedly fired a gun during the process to intimidate bank staff and keep security from approaching.
There is no word on whether his license plate was ill-concealed as it was with a previous bank robber who was later arrested. Police are collecting evidence and reviewing security video to track the robber.
