Fishing crook lands jail
ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina authorities said a fishing crook never had a chance to land the big one. Police told The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg a robber tried to steal money bags from a bank’s night deposit drop box using fishing line and hooks.

Authorities said employees at a First Citizen’s Bank in Orangeburg found a fishing hook in a bag last Friday morning and at least two other hooks in the box. One hook still had a small piece of fishing line attached.

The bank said it has security footage of the would-be angler.

Police said the crook’s task was impossible because the night deposit boxes are set up with trap doors so that once bags are dropped in, they can’t be taken out the same way
