Bank Teller and His Friends Convicted of Bank Heist
By Dhina Clement, Marketing –
The Perfect Heist
A group of friends from San Diego thought they planned out the perfect bank heist, but their flawed plan only led to their arrest. In the beginning everything seemed to have worked perfectly because one of them, Jesus Ramon Garcia Lopez worked in the bank so he knew exactly when it would be appropriate for his friend to come in and how much money to leave in the drawer. When the robbery was investigated by the police and FBI, they found that Lopez was too calm about the incident and the details he provided were too vague. The friends weren’t cautious either. When the FBI decided to look further into the issue, they found Lopez’s roommate’s Mares fingerprint over the note left by the robber and the two were linked in South America doing some high-priced partying. A few months later, Mares was linked with Aldo de Jesus Gomez who turned out to be the robber. Later all 3 men confessed and received a sentence.
New Technology Can Help Protect Businesses
How can businesses protect themselves from theft? By using EyeDetect® technology, this bank, like many other Latin American banks, can determine If their tellers can be trusted. The technology is specifically designed to prevent theft and select better new hiring candidates during the hiring process. A test would be administered in which the subject sits at a desk and answers true-or-false questions on a computer for about 30 minutes. Since there is no human administrator present, the test is less invasive, and the possibility of bias is eliminated. The Results are almost instantaneous and about 86 percent accurate since a high-resolution infrared camera is used to track changes in pupil size and differences in the way a subject reads statement. And since EyeDetect is already being used in 34 countries as part of job interviews and corporate investigations, it would have also helped the FBI and police station identify Lopez’s involvement in the robbery and piece the puzzle together sooner.
