How in the world? Why didn't they have to show identification to cash the checks in the first place. If they don't have one then they shouldn't cash the checks. Sounds like someone inside was getting a bonus!!!

Never Heard of a No Hat Law in Banks. I guess just about every man in the sate breaks this law when they enter a bank. Even the secruity guards...
It used to be considered a sign of good manners to take off a hat when entering a building,sadly,nobody hardly believes in using decency anymore.

why do the banks keep cashing these checks without the proper verification. It would be hard for me to try to cash a check at another bank without an account there, do they have inside help to get them cashed?
Thats what I was thinking, there must be someone on the inside assisting these guys. I would begin the investigation right there at the teller booth.

Oh Yeah, isn't it a law that you have to remove your hat when entering a bank?
The first time they came in with hats on someone should have asked them to take them off.
I remember reading an article - somewhere - about making it a law to remove hat and/or glasses when entering a bank. Nonetheless, I'm from the "old school" and any man (sorry, being a bit sexist but from what I can tell MOST bank robbers are male) of any caliber would remove his hat when entering a building. Any hat. Any building. Oh well.

How could this have happen with them being minorites. The tellers had to be blind in one eye and partial blind in the other eye.

They may have change shirts and hats
but faces don't change. Nor do hand writings. The teller could have compares signatures on the other checks cashed earlier.

Unless the tellers or teller was Hispanic or in on the deal.

these crooks to justice.(Dragnet)
Oh Friday was one of the best.

THE HISPANIC FOLKS ARE CAUSING A LOT OF HAVOC HERE IN THE US. DON'T THESE PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO ACT? IF IT IS NOT ONE THING IT IS ANOTHER WITH THEM. THEY NEED TO BE PUNISHED, OR SEND THEM BACK TO MEXICO. MAYBE IN MEXICO THEY CRIMES ARE ALLOWED. BUT HERE IN THE U.S. THEY NEED TO KNOW THAT CRIME IS PUNISHABLE... MAKE THE MEXICANS ACCOUNTABLE, OR SEND THEM BACK.

And are you legally here in the US? If you say yes, then the convo should end right there, because obviously festus' reference doesn't apply to you. That's festus' derogatory phrase in reference to ILLEGALS not to you law abiding, legal hispanic citizens...

Also, American's would get the work done without illegals just fine...

Hey I thought the bank had a sophisticated system that could detect counterfeit checks. Also, I thought that if you do not have an account with the bank, it is required to take a finger print and two forms of identification.

I'd like to apologize for wasting my time reading the comments posted here. Besides Becky and a few others, the majority of the posters here focused on the alleged criminals' nationality more than anything else. WLTX's article never stated they were illegal immigrant's but I applaud the negative posters here for speaking from the heart. I say if you're a racist let it be known. The First Amendment give us all the right to free speech, no matter how twisted your speech may be. Being Hispanic is not a crime and can not be changed. Defrauding a bank is a criminal act deserving punishment and can be changed. A racist mentality can be changed as well. It's just up to the perpatrators to make those changes.
