Yesterday’s crime scene metagram was a paint-blasted bag of money from a botched bank robbery

In our haste to report on the future of journalism, we kind of forgot about the actual story on why there happened to be a (seemingly) bloody bag of money on the sidewalk.  Luckily, Gareth the photographer fills us in:

“Not a bag of blood, a bag of paint bombed money. Bank had been robbed, dude ran up the street (this is in temescal, oakland), paint bomb went off in the bag of cash, dude dropped it and the note that said: ‘This is a robbery give me all the cash I have a gun.’”

    Who robs a bank and just takes 1′s?

    • Hmm says:

      Going to guess that’s what was handed over to them. Also looks like there’s a stack of 20s in there, too (or a bill with a big face, so not 1′s).

    I ALWAYS dump the bag on the street before it goes off, kick the bomb away or grab what i can before it goes off. Well, that’s what I would do……
