Helena just had a bank robbery. The man escaped on foot. Might he be part of the terrorist group that is blowing up cities in our fine state?

The local news said he made a bomb threat to get the money. There were seven employes in the bank at the time, no customers. I didnt know people still did this!

"A Helena man has been arrested for allegedly robbing the Mountain West Bank branch at the Great Northern Town Center Monday afternoon.

According to Helena police reports, Jerry Wayne Cooper, 47, was arrested at the Gold Bar on Last Chance Gulch in downtown Helena shortly after 5 p.m.

The bank was robbed today at 2:55 p.m.

The robbery included the report of a bomb, according to Judy Brennan, the bank's security officer.

According to the police reports, Cooper gave a teller at the bank a note saying he'd left a bomb in bank. He took an undisclosed amount of cash."


This man should be ashamed of himself, he robs a bank and is only on the lamb for like 3 hours before he gets caught. Any self respecting bank robber should be able to make it at least a few days before getting caught. People just don't take pride in their work anymore.

I agree. This is inexcusable incompetence. Maybe he should have started with something less challenging, like a hotdog stand or an ice-cream cart, rather than going for the big one while still so woefully under-skilled.

Maybe he'd have learned something along the way... as it is, first thing he went and blew all his earnings on strong drink. What kind of way is that to spend your first big paycheck??!

From the story in the paper it sounds like he was a transient. The paper also said our last bank robbery in Helena was 10 years ago. That guy tried to get away on an ATV.

Okay, I shoulda specified "a smarter class of amateur bank robbers". As you note, the pros already have it down pat.

(If PRO is the opposite of CON, what's the opposite of Progress??)
