During the second quarter of 2009, there were 1,304 reported violations of the Federal Bank Robbery and Incidental Crimes Statue, a decrease from the 1,444 reported violations in the same quarter of 2008.1 According to statistics released today by the FBI, there were 1,278 robberies of financial institutions2, 19 burglaries, and seven larcenies reported between April 1, 2009 and June 30, 2009. No extortions were reported during the quarter.

Highlights of the report include:

Loot was taken in 92 percent of the incidents, totaling more than $9.5 million.
Of the loot taken, 28 percent of it was recovered. More than $1.4 million was returned to the financial institutions.
Bank crimes most frequently occurred on Friday. Regardless of the day, the time frame when bank crimes occurred most frequently was between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
Acts of violence were committed in 4 percent of the incidents, resulting in 30 injuries, two deaths, and four hostages taken. The two individuals killed were perpetrators.
The most common methods used were oral demands, closely followed by written notes.
The southern region of the U.S. had the most violations, with 445 reported incidents.
These statistics were recorded as of July 23, 2009. Note that not all bank crimes are reported to the FBI, and therefore the report is not a complete statistical compilation of all bank crimes that occurred in the U.S
