Forgetful thief

Forgetful thief

Don­ald Van Ars­dale stood with his back fac­ing the Hud­son City Sav­ings Bank. He had his hands inside his empty pock­ets and was star­ing at his get­away vehi­cle try­ing to fig­ure it out. He guessed that he’d left his car keys inside the bank, remem­ber­ing how he had placed them on the cashier’s counter as he pulled the shot­gun on her and demanded she hand over the money. He slapped his fore­head with the palm of his hand and shook his head. There was no going back inside, he’d have to escape on foot and hope nobody works it out.
