    Yeah and I was arrested for the robbery and taken to jail. Not before half the police Seattle surrounded me, (while letting the really criminal get away. I’m 25 5’11 and from what I’ve heard sense I’ve been out is a police officer was on the scene of the robbery and saw the man. I’m upset about it all because I’m sencing something’s up. I was arrested on fails charges and didn’t have my memoranda right told to me or why I was being arrested. I would like someone to get in touch with me and let me know what they think and what they know. I was total embarrassed by this I live across the street from the bank wells Fargo and think that this is going to be a big problem. Can you Help me with my problem.
