Weymouth: Police say bank robbery suspects left internet trail

Here are some things not to do if you’re planning on robbing a bank: don’t leave a Google search on your home computer that includes queries like “what happens when you rob a bank”, ”what happens when you rob a house”, “what happens if you rob a drug dealer”, or “if you’re going to rob a bank”.

According to Weymouth police, that’s what they found at the home of their prime suspect in Friday’s robbery of Weymouth Bank on Columbian street.
