My puzzle "Where the money is" involved Brunor, a bank teller who robs his own bank by taking advantage of a conventional bank robbery where the robber demands money from him. Brunor lies about the amount of money that the robber got, figuring that even if the robber is caught, no one will believe the robber about how much money he got. Brunor thinks that his own strategy is foolproof, but he gets caught. How come?

Starting with the obvious, was he seen pocketing the money? Was he caught by a security camera?

Was the money marked in some way? Were the notes numbered sequentially?

Was he caught before he left the building? As he left the building? Was he caught when he tried to spend the money?

In the story I read, the police were suspicious about an unusual procedure -- the person who stole the dead man's money had been delivering his car from a garage, and claimed the dead man had not answered his door so he just left the key in the ignition. He was the first suspect because he was the last person to have been known to visit the victim, so they checked his locker at work and found the money.

Was there a sort of procedure the teller was expected to take that he did not? Some procedure he did take than he shouldn't have? Did the police question him about the robbery before they realized he had stolen money? Did he make a slip of the tongue, or was there some other sort of evidence?

Was Brunor searched? If so, was the evidence on him? Was it in a register? A vault? On the criminal's person? Sitting in the bank in the open?

Was the bank's money numbered in sequential order, and Brunor had some in his possession that corresponded to what was missing from the robber's haul? Was the robber caught? Was anything about the robber relevant? What the robber saw or heard? The robber's interaction with Brunor?

Was something missing that the criminal should have had? That Brunor should have had? That should have been sitting out in the bank?

Could an astute detective have figured out the deception just by looking at Brunor in the bank? Was the criminal caught? Would one have to have any interaction with the criminal to discover Brunor's guilt?

You missed my earlier questions, two posts up.

Is anyone involved besides Brunor, the robber, and the police? Was Brunor's deception discovered within: Seconds? Minutes? Hours? Days? Weeks? Months? Years? Did Brunor take a specific action that implicated him? Was the evidence against him direct (like fingerprints) or indirect (like a pattern of behavior)?

Could only one specific person have realized his guilt? If so, was it someone in the bank at the time? A coworker? A customer? someone with the police? A CSI? The robber himself, who somehow gets people to believe him?

Did Brunor take this action because he didn't want to be caught? Because he was newly wealthy? Did he put his stolen money somewhere?

Did he do something significant with other customers? In the front area of the bank? In/around the vault? At his desk?

Was it the behavior itself that was the evidence against him? Or did his action reveal material evidence?

RE: Brunor's interaction with the robber -- Brunor was the teller who handed the robber his money, correct? Or was he the teller next too, or a supervisor, or something else? Was the robber handed cash, or a bag with cash in it, or was the money transferred in some other way? Was the money accompanied by anti-theft devices, such as dye packs? Is so, was the money Brunor stole also accompanied by anti-theft devices?

Did Brunor call attention to the evidence himself, not knowing what it was? Did he reveal it accidentally? If so, was he aware that revealing it would incriminate him? Did he think revealing it would exonerate him instead?

So, yope to whether he was the teller robbed...was he not the teller involved in the robbery, but a different teller? Was he one of two tellers involved? One of several? Was the other robber a bank employee?
Was Brunor the relevent teller, but he did not "hand the robber his money"? Did he have to get the money from somewhere else? Is the money Brunor had on his person (his own cash, not related to the bank) relevant?

Did the robber ask for all the money in the bank? All the money in a specific place? Was Brunor seen handing over less money that someone else knew he had to give? Was the robber seen carrying less money? Is seeing the amount of money the robber got relevant at all?
The thing Brunor thought the robber would do, would he do it: before entering the bank? When entering? When threatening? when getting the money? Preparing to leave? Actually leaving? Getting away? Later? Is the robber's weapon relevant?

Is the reason why the robber did not do it important? Did it have anything to do with the amount of money he got from the robbery? Would most other robbers have done it?
Was the weapon a gun? Was it concealed? Did the robber conceal his face? Relevant?

Do Bruner & the Robber know each other? Did either of them use each other's name during the robbery? Had Bruner advance knowledge that the robbery was to take place? Did he expect the robber to be armed? Is knowledge of alarm or safe codes relevant? knowledge of the interior layout of the bank? Did the robber let slip something that hinted at an inside job?

Is the wrong assumption about: Brunor? The robber? The police? Was he not caught by the police? But by security? By a colleague? By a private investigator? By a passersby/bank customer?

Did any of these people catch Brunor? Did Brunor think the robber would be caught? And got in trouble because the robber got away?

Was the robber in fact caught at all? Was there even a real robber involved? Did Brunor mistake someone for a robber, who in fact was not?
If a robber was present, did he end up with any money after the robbery was complete (whether or not it was later recovered by the bank)?

did brunor see what he thought was a robbery? did he see a member of staff doing something and he thought they were robbing the bank? or did he believe for some other reason that a member of staff was going to rob the bank?

is blackmail relevant?

was he expecting the member of staff to leave after the 'robbery'? when in fact the staff member stayed?

Is the "robber" in fact someone testing the security systems of the bank? Or someone wanting to withdraw money from their own account, whom Bruno mistakes for a robber?

**** SPOILER ***********
Brunor the bank teller was planning to take advantage of a bank robbery, if one ever occurred, by understating how much money he gave the robber & pocketing the difference. He figured that even if the robber got caught, people would not believe a robber rather than a teller about how much money the robber got. Unfortunately for Brunor, the bank staged a fake robbery to see how well the security system was working. It sure worked against Brunor! This plot comes from a detective story. Please see my mnw puzzle you know where.
