What Is Bank Jugging

What Is Bank Jugging

Several law enforcement agencies across the state, including Plano, have been working on cases of a crime identified as "jugging". The Plano Police Department offers the following information on what "jugging" is, what citizens can be aware of, and things they can do to reduce their risks of becoming victims of this crime. 

WHAT IS BANK JUGGING? 
• The term is used to describe suspects who sit in bank parking lots and watch customers go in and out of a bank. The suspects follow the customers they believe are in possession of cash and look for an opportunity to burglarize their vehicles or rob them directly. 
• “Juggers” most frequently target customers carrying bank bags, bank envelopes and coin boxes. 
• Most “jugging” Burglary of Motor Vehicles occur at a retail or commercial business the customer stops at after leaving the bank. 
• If a customer leaves the bank and does not leave their money unattended in the vehicle most “Juggers” will go back to the bank to target another banking customer; however, some “Juggers” will confront the customer in an attempt to rob them by taking the money by force. 

THINGS TO BE AWARE OF WHEN BANKING: 
• Occupied vehicles backed into parking spaces with clear view of the front doors of the bank, ATM or commercial drive thru line. 
• Vehicles arriving at bank with no occupants entering the bank. 
• Vehicles changing parking spaces. 
• Vehicles with dark tinted windows with little or no visibility of the occupants. 
• Vehicles with multiple occupants. 

HOW CAN YOU PROTECT YOURSELF? 
• Always be aware of your surroundings. 
• Conceal money before leaving the bank. Never openly carry bank bags, envelopes or coin boxes. 
• Be aware of anyone following you from the area of a bank. 
• If you suspect you are being targeted, call 911 from your cell phone and keep the dispatcher informed of your location, the direction you are traveling, and drive toward the police station until marked police cars are able to locate you. 
• Do not leave or try to hide your bank bag or bank envelope in your vehicle when you exit at 
your next destination, even if it’s your residence.
