    Why do they always say that they don’t know how much cash was taken, don’t the tellers count there cash in the mornings before they open. OK the way to determine that is to count what you have left, what checks u cashed & compair to the morning start amount, come on now, if you dont know then u might be in the wrong business, things are getting bad in burlington robberys, killings & everything

    @ Melissa – Banks 99% of the time will not disclose the amount as to not encourage other robbers. Of course they know how much is in their drawer, they have guidelines too.
