    Why does someone always have to critizize WITN? No where on this page does it say "first on" If you people dont like them then go with the other sites that you have to complain about. WITN i think you do a fine job. Good enough for me!!

    That's a pretty darn good picture of the suspect. I hope that someone can find him!

    From what I can tell...thats NOT a tan ball cap and it looks like a black zip up hoodie. No wonder we cant find the people who commit crimes. Someone cant even describe a bank robber right and he is ON THE CAMERA!!

    What a genius.. When caught he will face federal time for attempting to rob a bank and he has nothing to show for it.
