You’re Such a Dummy
MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP, N.J.-
This is one of those laugh out loud moments. It was after hours at a PNC bank in New Jersey. The internal bank alarm sounded and police rushed to the scene. Through the windows of the bank police were able to see at least one person inside. The area was sealed off and three nearby apartment buildings were evacuated as a precaution.
Police negotiators used bullhorns and the telephone in an attempt to make contact with whoever was inside the bank. After repeatedly failing to make contact the SWAT team was instructed to enter the bank, where it identified the assailant as a cardboard figure used for advertising. It was not known what actually set off the alarm.
The moral of the story: While all the city police are busy arresting the cardboard figure, hurry up and rob the bank across town.
