Lunch box robber at Edina M&I Bank caught on camera

Categories: Crime

Who is this guy?
A guy wearing a wool hat, scarf and sunglasses walked into the M&I Bank branch at 3905 West 69th Street in Edina yesterday at about 10 a.m. He put down an insulated lunch box on the counter, told the teller there was a bomb inside and demanded cash.

A security camera caught the whole episode, not far from the Galleria and Southdale malls -- not that the guy with the alleged bomb appeared to care or even know.

He took the cash, stuffed it in his "bomb" and left. In broad daylight he climbed into a white, four-door KIA Spectra and drove away.

Another bank robber who doesn't care if security cameras catch him in action.
The teller told police she thought she saw a brown paper wrapper and some sort of electrical switch when he opened the lunch box.

Have you seen this guy? The FBI describes as being in his 20s or 30s, about 6 feet tall, and weighing about 185 pounds. Along with the head gear, he wore a green jacket with some kind of logo on the left breast, dark pants and shoes. Give the cops a call if you have any info: Edina PD at (952) 826-1610, Hennepin County Sheriff's Office at (888) 988-TIPS, Minneapolis FBI at (612) 376-3200, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.

I love Buddy Holly but there is a person to address about this topic. Timothy D Kehr, you are living 30+ years in the past. Who gives a hell about your commercials as most people who even remember them are dead or about to die. I'm sorry that you never accomplished stardom, but in your mind you did. You were a nobody and you still are a nobody! Why don't you close your eyes and dream about yourself walking down the red carpet, because it will only be a dream! Your name, TIMOTHY D. KEHR as if you are a recognizable name. You are the biggest phony in the Twin Cities. Also, by the way, you make it sound as if you are very wealthy. There is a running joke that we all have here here in Edina. We all know that you are the cheapest person in the Metro if not the state. All of us here talk about how you act like you are really something, but we laugh after you walk away as we have done this for years. Timmy, lets hear more about Buddy Holly and other topics that are so old that there should be dust coming out of your mouth Timmy boy the 60's were 40 years ago, back to reality now. News alert Tim, nobody cares about these topics but you, don't you get it? Most of us have known you for 20+ years and we are all wondering when you will finally realize that you are as important as the cleak at the Dollar Store. Wake up you idiot!
