FBI: West Michigan bank robberies down 80-percent in 2014

GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- It's an easier year to be a bank teller in west Michigan, as the FBI has released statistics showing an 80-percent drop in bank robberies in 2014 in Kent, Ottawa and Muskegon counties. Grand Rapids experienced its first bank robbery of the year on Monday when a man hit the Lake Michigan Credit Union branch on the campus of Mercy Health Saint Mary's, and police believe they know who he is.

Grand Rapids Police Lieutenant Pat Merrill says they have no bank robberies that have gone unsolved in the city since 2011.
