Terrible place for a picture of the suspect. At first, it looks like a billboard so you don’t notice it. Add some white outline to his picture or move it to a different spot so that it can be helpful to people who read this article.


Since this bank was in the process of being built all I ever said was how stupid do u have to be to have a bank right by a exit and entrance of a highway this is the second time in 4 years that it’s been robbed smh good luck finding this person
