Show me de mony man!

That's the best pictures they have? Really, in the age of high definition television and video surveillance, I would hope that banks could do better for their customers. Sadly, unless you know these men by their clothing, it is very difficult to identify them.

I am so surprised they are black. Given , you know, that there is such a big population of blacks in Livermore.

I was hoping that they would be white, just so that they get the racists posting here to lay off that nonsense.

It doesn't help that they seem to have bad lighting here, either, given that this is a bank. If you walk into any bank branch of my bank, you find them well lit with even bright colors for the wall, ceiling and carpet, with cameras at different angles to get as much of a view of a person should they wind up robbing a bank.

Look; He is wearing Nikes. Man can he run. He must of cross the steet at the crosswalk given that our cops have been looking for jay-walkers to ticket. I bet he has not spent a dime of the money in our town. Should be some law against that.

I wish these guys had better options for earning money.

Chase bank earned more than 5 billion in profits in 2011 and this is the best surveillance video they could come up with? There are better pictures taken on Splash Mountain.
Jim Chu October 05, 2012 at 04:42 PM
Yep. They probably spent $50,000 on their surveillance system. Two 5 MP game cameras at my parent's place took very nice pictures of the burglars who broke into the neighbor's house. The picture of their car and the legible license plate led the police to the kids responsible. Now several neighbors have game cameras too. These work for a fraction of what a comparable video system costs. Don't invest in video. Motion-activated still cameras work much better and give you pictures in which you can actually identify people, license plates, and other fine details. If Chase had one mounted on the side of each doorway pointing in, they'd have pictures that could actually be useful. On a separate note, why do they always mount the cameras up high? They should be mounted at shoulder level to you can actually see the (blurry) faces and not their ball cap brims.

Honestly Chase, based on the photo evidence I would have to say... With all the high tech surveillance camera systems available why are there only three extremely low quality photos??? Are you trying to encourage criminals???

Can you read the one suspect's shirt? A simple Google search will provide the answer to that question. Dark skin does not always mean black.
Livermore Prophet October 06, 2012 at 03:37 PM
Yeah. That guy wasn't suspicious looking when he walked through the front door?
Ann October 06, 2012 at 04:20 PM
They do have better options for earning money, unfortunately, they prefer to steal from other hard working people. I hope they catch them and put them in jail, away from society, for a long, long time!

The real problem with these small bank heists are their propensity to turn violent. "The best way to rob a bank is to own one."
John Harrington October 07, 2012 at 02:52 AM
If they get caught, don't count on a long sentence. This is Alameda County. They will be back on the streets in a few months.
Californicated1 October 07, 2012 at 08:37 AM
Let's take comfort that they are robbing banks instead of Denny's or any other restaurant, where the take may not be as much and they in turn decide to rob the patrons as well as the restaurant--and gets more violent. And for those of us that remember what happened when the Outback Steakhouse in Dublin was robbed back in 1998 and Deputy Monego wound up being killed when he attempted to intervene. We don't need any more of those. Besides, all those highway signs honoring fallen Law Enforcement around here just clutters up the roadsides and takes our attention and concentration away from our driving. If I want that kind of distraction on the roadside, I would rather see billboards advertising for plastic surgery clinics, suntan lotion and even strip clubs and casinos with showgirls, but that's me.

Well put!

I noticed the shirt, too. Because it says that he is Fij(i)an doesn't mean a whole lot these days. Fiji, being a former British Colony, had immigrants from all over the Empire out there. It isn't surprising to see African immigrants on that island these days than to see Indian immigrants or even European immigrants, be they from the home islands or from the dominions. And just like the native Hawaiians, Guamanians and Samoans these days, it isn't uncommon to find that even the natives were making hot love with the newcomers and having babies with them. So when it comes comes to questioning why we see a Fiji shirt on what appears to be a Black bank-robber, the question that remains is the following-- "So?"
Kirk Snyder October 08, 2012 at 12:30 AM
No surprise at all.
Sean October 08, 2012 at 03:48 PM
Clearly this is a hoax. There can't be any crime since BART hasn't been extended yet.
Livermore resident October 08, 2012 at 06:52 PM
thiefs are cowards that are not willing to work for their money! shame on them and anyone who steals anything, even a candy bar! Karama is a B****!
