Millville, NJ: Youths Smash Up 3 Schools in 20 Minutes

Armed with baseball bats, they smashed window after window.

Three shadowy figures caught on surveillance video are the vandals who hit three city schools, miles apart, in a span of just twenty minutes.

The three schools are Rieck Avenue and Silver Run Elementary Schools and Millville Senior High School.

Starting around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, the culprits shattered a total of 25 windows at the elementary schools.

They then moved on to Millville Senior High School where six more windows were taken out.

It all adds up to as much as $30,000 in damage.

9th Bank Robbery Sets a Record: The Number of Tulsa Heists for One Month is Called "Unprecedented."

(Source: Tulsa World)


Jan. 30--Calling a string of nine bank robberies in one month "unprecedented," a Tulsa robbery detective attributed the trend to "copycat" criminals rather than to people made desperate by the economy.

The city of Tulsa saw its ninth bank robbery of the year -- a record for any one month -- on Thursday afternoon.

"This is unprecedented," said the detective, Sgt. Dave Walker.

Fourteen Tulsa financial institutions were robbed in all of 2008.

A man walked into the Arvest Bank at 36th Street and Yale Avenue at 12:37 p.m. Thursday, demanded money and left with an undisclosed amount of cash, Walker said.

Customers were in the bank, but no one was injured, authorities said.

The robber presented a teller with a note implying he had a gun, but he never brandished a weapon, Walker said.

The robber fled west on foot.

After the robbery, police canvassed the area and interviewed neighbors.

Authorities found a coat in the 3300 block of Winston Avenue, but Walker said he wasn't sure whether it belonged to the robber.

Although people may think the ailing economy is the reason for the recent rash of robberies, Walker said that may not be the case.

"I think part of the reason is copycats," he said.

Walker said the suspects police are investigating aren't laid-off workers but are known criminals.

Elaine Dodd, the vice president of the Oklahoma Bankers Association's Fraud Division

in Oklahoma City, said Oklahoma banks are being proactive in halting the string of robberies.

Upgraded surveillance cameras have been installed, and many banks are hiring armed security guards, she said.

Banks also continue to offer reward money for information leading to a suspect's arrest.

Dodd said bank employees are trained and prepared for robberies and that safety is always the No. 1 concern.

"It's a stupid crime," said Dodd, who worked in law enforcement for 25 years and who is not the Tulsa County Democratic Party chairwoman of the same name. "If robbers come in, we will catch them."

Of the nine robberies of Tulsa financial institutions this year, Walker said, police have captured one suspect who they think committed two robberies.
