A bank robbery in Minnesota was caught on live TV , sort of. Reporter Adam Sallet from KIMT News Three was beginning a live report this week outside of a Sterling State Bank branch in Rochester about a string of robberies in the city.
Just seconds into his report, a bank employee ran up and interrupted Sallet to tell him a bank robber had just struck again. The bank employee pointed to someone running away, but the robber was not caught on camera. Sallet quickly ended his report and called 9-1-1. He later tweeted that the robbery suspect was in custody, and the person is likely the same person who tried to rob that bank a day earlier.
