CLEVELAND — In most businesses nowadays, customers are expected to put down the phone before receiving service. Some even post this rule near the counter.
In addition to ignoring the law, a suspected bank robber apparently ignored that largely-universal policy during a job in Cleveland on Thursday.
According to the Cleveland FBI, the man passed a note to the teller that said he had a weapon.
It happened at the PNC Bank on Pearl Road around 10:13 a.m.
Surveillance video showed him holding what looked like a cell phone to his ear.
The man is about 5′ 8″-5′ 9″ with a medium build and possibly in his thirties.
He was wearing large dark-frame glasses and a bomber hat.
Anyone with information should call the Cleveland FBI at (216) 522-1400 and may remain anonymous.
Reward money is available for the tip that leads to the man’s prosecution.
