A robbery in broad daylight at the Bank of Marshall Islands’ debit card center resulted in an immediate change to the debit dispenser window, as seen in the photo.

The debit card window slot has been modified so that people would have hard time reaching in to the secured area.

Police from Kwajalein Atoll Local Government pursued and apprehended two teenage male suspects alleged to be the robbers. Ebeye being a tight-knit community, identifying the culprits was not difficult. 

According to multiple witnesses, the teller temporarily left the post and the teenagers reached in and ran off with a bundle of money.
