This thief obviously didn’t use the right tackle for the kind of fishing he was doing…

From the story on

Police in South Carolina said a would-be thief attempted to use fishing line and hooks to angle for bank deposit bags in a bank’s night drop slot. Capt. Ed Conner of the Orangeburg Department of Public Safety said First Citizen’s Bank employees retrieved the bags Friday morning and discovered a hook embedded in one of the bags with fishing line dangling from the hook, The (Orangeburg, S.C.) Times and Democrat reported Thursday. _The employees found two other hooks and putty, believed to have been used as a weight, in the deposit box. Police said bank security footage shows someone outside the facility at about 4:30 a.m. “It’s under investigation,” Conner said. “We’ll be looking at the evidence to see if we can put a face with the image on video.”

He said the would-be thief picked the wrong method for the crime. “The security mechanisms at the bank’s night deposit drop … it’s impossible for someone to retrieve a bag,” Conner told The Times and Democrat. “In other words, you can’t go fishing for a night deposit bag.”_
