5:05 pm
electrical lines and had to wait until the power was shut off. about 40 miles down the highway, a fire in woodbury, gloucester county, sent several people to the hospital. firefighters say the l. made fighting the flames even more difficult. nbc 10's south jersey reporter cydney long is live at the scene of that fire tonight. cydney, neighbors initially said they heard an explosion. >> reporter: erin, that's right. the fire chief told me that was probably the noise of the car fires bursting from the homes this morning. two homes were destroyed as well as these two cars. then a third home damaged. the little who lives there says of the four victims who remain hospitalized here at this home in the center of this block, and one man who jumped from the second story i wouwindow, they should make a full recovery. 19-year-old ian pickins said it's surreal that where he laid

5:08 pm
resident of the united states. authorities say he traveled in yemen last year in an attempt to join isis but was unsuccessful. his attack on times square, he said, was going to be like the one in nice, france in july. 86 people were killed, more than 400 were hurt there in nice. a bucks county man accused of sexually assaulting six girls in the same family will head to trial after waiving a preliminary hearing this morning. authorities claim lee kaplan fathered two children with a then 14-year-old girl who had been gifted to him for helping her parents financially. additionally charges were filed last month alleging the 52-year-old sexually assaulted five of the girl's sisters. kaplan's defense attorney says his client maintains his innocence but didn't want to make the girls testify during the holiday season. >> he took these people and he educated them and he helped
5:09 pm
support them financially. he didn't have a sexual relationship with the minor children. he had what he believed to be a family relationship with them. >> a trial date has not been set. the nation's second largest commuter railroad is no longer allowing engineers to operate trains while they're being treated for sleep apnea. new jersey transit leaders made the change last month after the engineer in the deadly train cash in hoboken was later found to have sleep apnea. federal regulators are targeting the fatigue-inducing disorder this week with a new bulletin warning railroads to screen engineers. governor tom wolf is vetoing information that he says would have withheld public information from the public. it would have immediately released the names of police officers that illegally fired their weapon. the bill would also have
5:10 pm
required the release of the officer's name if he or she was charged with a crime. but the officer's name would have been withheld if an investigation didn't produce charges. $100 million. that's how much a philadelphia charity is committing to philadelphia's neediest neighborhoods. the william penn foundation is donating the money to mayor jim kenney's community rebuilding initiative. it will help rehabilitate parks, libraries, and playgrounds. it's the single largest grant in the foundation's history. coming up also tonight, we have seen the surveillance photos time and time again. robbers showing up at banks and taking off with cash. >> the banks are making themselves more customer friendly. and this makes it more robber friendly at the same time. >> tonight, the nbc 10 investigators show us why we're all paying for these crimes, and if banks are doing enough to stop them.
5:11 pm
5:12 pm
what do we want our kids to learn? how to game a test... or test themselves in a game? how to master an exam... or examine a master? how to be robots... or build robots? the njea believes students deserve a well-rounded education- including arts, music, technology, and so much more. that's why we're working with parents and communities to reduce the emphasis on high stakes testing. because when you limit the tests, they can test the limits... of their potential.
5:13 pm
new tonight, bank bandits. robbers get the cash and we all pay the price. >> are banks doing enough to prevent robberies? >> tonight, as you just heard, the nbc 10 investigators ask that very question. >> investigative reporter george spencer got ahold of the fbi's records and shows us what he found.
5:14 pm
>> reporter: through the camera's eye, we all get a teller's view of bank robberies in progress. wanted by police, the safety vest robber. the so-called straw hat bandit. and occasionally a female robber, hidden only by her sunglasses. the crime is jarring. yet almost familiar. >> there seems to be something personal about it. i was in that bank, kind of feeling that people have. >> reporter: robert mccree has made tracking bank robberies a big part of his 45-year career as professor of security management at john jay college in new york. fbi records show a downward trend in robberies across the country except for a small bump last year. in fbi data from around our region, we discovered that trend has wobbled, declining from 2010 to 2012, creeping up through 2013 and '14, then dropping again in 2015.
5:15 pm
are we doing enough to prevent bank robberies? >> no, we aren't. >> reporter: he says when robberies aren't prevented, we all bear the costs of prosecuting the criminals. we found six out of ten local bank robberies are marked as solved or closed, the remaining four still open or pending. we also discovered outliers with lower solve rates, like camden, delawa delaware, and montgomery countys, at 37% solved. the fbi offers no explanation for the differences in those areas. the local task force declined to speak with us for this story. in general, mccree believes modern bank design, with lower counters and fewer plexiglas dividers, makes robberies easier. >> banks are making themselves more customer-friendly, and this makes it more robber-friendly at the same time. >> reporter: he's also troubled
5:16 pm
by uneven surveillance technology from branch to branch, which sometimes leaves investigators with only the grainiest camera images for evidence. >> that is deplorable. it's showing that the bank just is totally ignoring technology that's available to get really sharp, welhigh-resolution pictu. >> reporter: doug johnson, senior vice president of the american bankers association, says declining technology costs make upgrades increasingly affordable. he also tells us bank design changes reflect changing desires of bank customers. >> what we're trying to do is balance, you know, the desire of our customers to have a friendly environment, with the need to protect that environment. >> reporter: the federal government maintains only general guidelines about bank branch security like requiring that they establish procedures that will assist in identifying
5:17 pm
persons committing crimes against the bank. but it leaves the specific execution to individual banks. and johnson believes it should stay that way, individual branches deciding on the design and camera surveillance which best fits their own level of bank robbery risk. for the investigators, george spencer, nbc 10 news. >> it's worth noting, among the three states in our area, pennsylvania stood out. last year it had more bank robberies than any other state except the much larger texas and california. the nbc 10 investigators found out much more about bank robberies in our area, and you can learn more about who is committing these crimes, which types of banks are most likely to get hit, and when. you can find that out right now on oh, boy. you hear that? that is the sound of winter. people in central new york are
