When an armed bank robber struck a Wells Fargo branch in Aurora, Colorado, police took extraordinary and controversial steps to find the suspect.
They pulled over 19 cars at an intersection and ordered everyone out of them at gunpoint, even children.
"I had my hands up, they had rifles and guns and everything pointed at me with shields and a canine dog," 16-year-old Michael Hance told CNN's Ted Rowlands about the June incident.
Nearly everyone was then handcuffed and treated as an armed and dangerous suspect.
They did this because the stolen money bag with $25,000 had a GPS device hidden inside and it showed the bank robbery suspect was at the intersection.
