Little did the Security guard know there was going to be a robbery attack on the bank same night.
As the robbers broke in, they went directly to the desk where the cash had been left by a female teller of the bank before she left office, cash she had recorded as saved in the system. The guard on duty blew an alarm to alert the cops about the attempted robbery that caused the robbers flee the premises.
