"Wig Wearing Bandits" Drive Bank Robberies Up

ATLANTA -- You might think there have been a lot of bank robberies from watching news recently. The FBI says you're right. What is troubling them most is the nature of those robberies. Many of them are violent with customers and employees being terrorized inside the banks.

On Tuesday, a man wearing a porcelain mask jumped over the counter at the Chase Bank on Piedmont Road in Atlanta. He had a gun and cleared out the teller drawers.

On Thursday, two men wearing hoodies stormed a SunTrust Bank on Paces Ferry Road in Vinings shouting orders and brandishing a gun. The FBI calls them "Takeover Robberies". They are the kind that grabs media attention and yours.
