Can anyone please define unit cash? Police responded to a robbery at TCF Bank. Unit cash was stolen.

It's my understanding that the amt of money taken is never disclosed in order to not give the public the impression how easy it is to do this to get a lg sum of money? Very sad people lower themselves to do this. It appears as time goes on law enforcement has changed how they name crimes. For instance, a "burglary of a dwelling" is now called a "home invasion". When a bank was robbed they used to say, an "undisclosed amt of money" was stollen. I think, but not possitive, they now say, a "unit cash" or "unit of cash" was stollen. Just a idea.
