As of this writing, police have not released the contents of the note that Garcia used to hold up the McAllen bank on April 14. But they did say that she entered the location, near the intersection of South Main Street and Erie Avenue, just before 10:00 AM without a weapon.
Banks often package large amounts of cash with the stain-making devices as a security measure. Evidence of the exploded pack remained on the bank’s outside wall hours after the robbery.
“That stain’s going to be with her for a long time,” Rodriguez said. “That ink is pretty powerful.”
