Two Scary Bank Robbers Have Been Arrested, Two More on the Loose




That's a pretty scary visual over there to the right. Halloween masks. Guns. Not what you want to see at your local bank. Maybe in a Ben Affleck flick, but only if the Boston accents are done well, and even then not really.

Yesterday afternoon reports broke that the Fifth Third Bank in Rocky River was held up by at between three and four masked men wielding guns.

But guns and masks don't necessarily mean you'll get away, as evidenced by two of the suspects who were arrested in a Dodge Caravan just down I-90 at Warren Rd, . Now the FBI is saying that two more men involved in the robbery eluded capture and are the loose, probably not wearing their masks anymore though.
