Did they ever say how long he was in the bank for? The pictures have a wide spread time frame on them. Between 12:59 - 2:54 or are the earlier times in this just him walking around the bank before he actually entered? Just wondering that is all.

Previously, we reported -- I believe -- that investigators know he was in the village from around noon.

This bank has no cameras positioned behind the tellers? It would give a much better shot of the guy...

Why do banks continue to have tellers exposed to the public? Why don't bank entrances have a double door entryway? If you walk in through the first entrance with a hoodie on or a hat and sunglasses, you're not getting in. Smile for the camera and you can gain entry. There's got to be an economical way to make it considerably more difficult to rob a bank.

Doug, it's unfortunate that banks are set up the way they are. I agree with you. However, in a little area like Corfu, I don't see anything more "high tech" happening. I worked at that bank for a short time. The girls there are very vulnerable. I'm glad no one was hurt. The cameras ... they'd be better off with something manufactured by Fisher Price! The quality is awful!

In Italy, you have to walk through this airlock thing (for lack of a better word) and you are basicly locked in there until you put anything metal in these locker things. the airlock is a metal detector. If i remember correctly, it won't unlock until all your metal things are locked in the locker....

A lot of banks in the Philly and Baltimore areas have exactly the system Doug described. You walk in the first door and have to wait until the guard buzzes you in the second. Pain in the butt, but stops robberies. Didn't bother me much, I hardly ever go into a bank anymore anyways.

Here we go again with these worthless security images. We have all these cameras taking hi-def pictures of us driving through intersections but walmart-resembling trail cams in banks. That particular bank is my personal bank and it troubles me to see it get robbed. I know the FDIC protects our deposits but this is just irresponsible, step it up M&T.
