Bank RobberyMystery teasers are little stories where you need to figure out what happened based on the given clues.
In the middle of New York City, police officers were called to a bank robbery. The thief had already escaped with the contents of the bank's main vault minutes before the police arrived. They received information from the witnesses and narrowed the suspect list down to two people. From the information below, can you determine who committed the bank robbery?
"Hello, detective," said the first suspect.
"Good morning. Do you know anything about what happened in the bank earlier today?"
"Yes, but only what I've heard other people say. People were talking about it at work. I think they said the suspect escaped in a red minivan, wearing a dark colored mask, and he had three large bags of money."
"Sir, where were you at the time of the crime?" asked the detective.
"I was at work. I work down the road from the bank, at the insurance building," responded the suspect.
"Have you ever been in that bank?" the detective asked.
"Never. I use another bank on the other side of town," he responded.
The detective continued his questioning. "Do you mind if we bring you to the bank to see if you match some of the evidence left behind?"
"Go ahead," said the suspect, "take me back to the bank and see what you can find."
AnswerSuspect #2 is the one who had committed the crime. He had said "take me back to the bank" after he said he had never been inside of that bank.
The detective immediately caught this mistake and brought the suspect down to police headquarters.
