The First Rule Of Bank Robbery

What's the first rule if you want to rob a bank?

Robbery charges stun teenagers' families

Family and friends of two Australian teenagers charged with bank robbery in the US are "shocked" and "devastated" about the situation facing the two men.

Luke Gabriel Carroll and Anthony Harold Prince, both 19, are spending the Easter weekend in jail after being arrested at Denver International Airport six days ago.

The childhood friends from the NSW North Coast are in FBI custody after being accused of stealing about $US130,000 ($168,000) in a bank hold-up at Colorado snow resort Vail. An FBI affidavit allegedly states Carroll and Prince confessed to the crime.

The teenagers face up to 25 years in prison after allegedly forcing two female tellers at the Vail Village WestStar Bank to hand over the money at gunpoint on March 21.

Police said the robbers, whose faces were hidden behind ski masks, were armed with air pistols.

Authorities said the Australian ski enthusiasts were easily detectable because of their accents, name tags they were wearing and the types of weapons used.

I'm not sure the exact first rule, but I'm pretty sure not wearing name tags while you do it is in the top 10.

An FBI affidavit allegedly states Carroll and Prince confessed to the crime.

So, is the reporter not sure if the affidavit really states that they confessed? Allegedly, this alleged reporter did not attend any alleged English courses while in an alleged college.
