Thief goes fishing for bank deposits

`A thief used a hook and line not to snag fish, but to remove bags of cash from a bank’s night deposit box, police said.

Police would not say how much money they believe was taken, but think the thief made off with 11 deposit bags, Bloomington police Sgt. David Drake said. [..]

Authorities found the deposit box had been damaged, with one of the metal security pieces sheared off.

“It would’ve taken a lot of force to take that off,” Drake said.

Next to the piece of broken metal, police found a dowel rod with fishing line and a hook.

Drake said authorities believe whoever broke into the deposit box dangled the hook and line into the box and fished out the deposit bags, one by one.’
