Rob a bank in movie theaters or TV shows may seem easy to viewers. But the bank robbing
process is not as easy as it actually seems. An unknown person may have committed a
bank robbery in the movies at Pembroke Pines on Wednesday.
According to the news of NBC 6, there is a tunnel reaching Chase Bank and the tunnel is
being investigated by the FBI. It was reported that there were tools such as generators,
cranes and wagons in the 45-meter-long tunnel.
“We don’t know who’s behind this right now,” FBI Special Agent Michael Leverock said in a
statement. They could have been here a week ago or last night. This tunnel is really a big
one.” Police teams also did research with cadaver dogs due to the possibility of being human
inside, but nobody was found in the tunnel.
The tunnel may have collapsed due to heavy rainfall. For this reason, it is not possible to say
that the person who opened the tunnel ran away with a large amount of money. Michael
Leverock added that the incident was described by the authorities as an attempt to robbery.
The NBC 6 reporter shared a live tweet about the scene:
Workers continue to dig next to the Chase Bank on S Flamingo Rd and Pines Blvd. where an underground tunnel was found. FBI has yet to give details but we’ve seen muddy boots, a generator, a stool, and a rake, pulled from the hole @nbc6 pic.twitter.com/wB7ib8hFIv
