On Friday, sheriff’s deputies and moving vans showed up at the bank.

“I instructed the deputy to go in and take desks, computers, copiers, and filing cabinets, including cash in the drawers,” Allen says.

Inside, says WINK, “The homeowners’ attorney was locked out of the bank manager’s office by deputies while the bank manger tried to figure out what to do.”…
