Nov. 2, 2012 — Pompano Beach

Michael Webb tried to rob the same Chase Bank in Pompano Beach for the third time.

Webb usually jumped over the counter and demanded money. This time he encountered bulletproof glass at the teller's window, so he ran away.

A bank employee and a witness jotted down his license plate number. Deputies chased Webb until a detective hit the bumper of his pickup on Interstate 95, causing it to lose control and roll over. Read more
