Withmore Justice Force
Bank Robbery Frustrated by Judges
10th October, 2102
On the ninth of October at approximately 23:00, bystanders reported disturbances at Withmore Savings Bank central branch on Soma Street in Gold Sector. A solitary Judge unit responded, only to be stunned by a sonic grenade which did no harm to the Law Enforcement Officer, despite knocking out the innocent bystanders.
Response crimes in Gold Sector vary from ten to eighty seconds, in average. The response time for the Judge units called for the altercation in Gold fell within this margin, and soon the gunslinging criminals were surrounded by a small squad of the elite lawmen. Read More
Deadly gunfire broke the hubbub of the streets as the Judges unwielded their firearms and, outnumbered two to one, subdued the criminals, rendering them dead. No civilian casualties were reported.
The Medical Response Team successfully resuscitated the five perpetrators, to be brought into interrogation at the Hall of Justice. Shortly thereafter the identities of the criminals were confirmed, mostly all residents from Red Sector: Jak Din, Epoch Hendricks, Wilco Robbins, and Jason Stettem. An additional perpetrator named Zhang Jei, a former Corporate Security worker, was also caught as he attempted to escape the scene of the crime.
Further forensic investigation concluded that the criminals were working on an underground tunnel that would break into the vault of the bank. However, little did they know that the vault at the time was empty due to protocol procedure in the bank operations. This poses new challenges for the safety of our city, such as the trustworthiness of corporate citizens who could pose a threat of espionage or infiltration, and the infrastucture which connects Red Sector with Gold Sector, issues which are being addressed today. With this in mind, it makes sense that the City is so keen on reporting fellow coworkers who might be consorting with "unsavory individuals".
A total of three high-caliber firearms were confiscated, along with three blades or other melee weapons. Promptly the Citizens were executed and sent to iso-cubes for an indefinite amount of time. This is the first attempted bank robbery in three years for the main branch of Withmore Savings Bank.
The Justice Force commends the labour of Judges Steele, Hart, and Janz for their bravery in the field, as well as the crucial cooperation of our Medical Response Team, the WSB staff, and the citizens who had to endure this tragical experience.
And as always, we remind you to obey the Law at all times, and report all crimes to the Hall of Justice.
