Police blotter

Earlier this year, Cahors was abuzz with its first ever bank robbery.   Two men, or maybe three, held up a small bank in the market square.   They made off with very little money, but in a relatively crime-free department, this was a big deal.   They weren't locals   -   the getaway car had Toulouse plates, my ex-police-chief friend said comfortingly that evening.

Yesterday, two of the presumed perpetrators were committed for trial at the Assizes.   The third man is believed to be a Cahors man who knew the bank well.   Maybe we can't sleep so easily after all.
