Returning from the Arts Festival I encountered a long line of cars on Ocean Ave. This is something you only see on peak Summer weekends not on a Wednesday, any Wednesday.
Turns out we had another robbery at the US Bank. That bank has been hit so many times I've lost count. The pile-up of cars on Ocean was because of the robbery. I guess the cops were directing cars onto Ocean Ave. Us regulars know all to well that you never, I mean never, use Ocean Ave. to get to PCH.
The robber was caught at the bus stop up at PCH and Jasmine. The guy used only a note to rob the bank and then was attempting to catch a bus out of town.
Here's the story in Patch.
