Woman with recycling bag robs Austin bank

This is not the way to recycle. Please do not ban green grocery bags in banks now.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – Going green helped a woman rob an Austin bank.

The Travis County Sheriff’s Office says a woman held up a bank Tuesday and apparently used a recyclable grocery bag to haul away the greenbacks.

Sheriff’s spokesman Roger Wade told The Associated Press, after viewing surveillance photos of the unidentified woman with the green bag, that he’s guessing “that’s where she put the money.”

Wade says the bag was the only one the woman has going in and coming out of the Regions Bank branch.

No weapon was displayed. Nobody was injured.

The amount of money stolen was not released by law officers.
