Granny Snatcher-Little Old Lady Robs A Bank?
Updated : May 12, 2009
VeryHappyPig isn’t a fan of stereotypes. We don’t think all Americans should be seen as fat or all politicians should be seen as crooked, we do, however think all bank robbers should hard ass, stubble sporting aggressive gun carrying criminals.
That certainly wasn’t the case in Germany recently when it seemed a little old lady robbed a bank!
Police are hunting a crook that got clean away with more than £10,000 after robbing a bank dressed as a little old lady.
The bandit shuffled into the bank in Hamburg, Germany, wearing a headscarf, thick glasses and a long coat before pulling a gun on cashiers.
More than 100 police officers took part in a chaotic city-wide search for the cross-dressing blagger - and arrested five real-life old ladies as suspects before letting them go.
A police spokesman said: "A cashier said they saw a smiling little old lady come up to the cash desk, but then she suddenly whipped out a gun, roared in a deep male voice to hand over the cash and then fled like as quickly as an Olympic athlete.
"A lot of bank robbers just put a balaclava over their heads to hide their face, but this particular disguise was very well thought out and makes catching them especially hard."
VeryHappyPig says it’s not quiet good news but admit it, the thought of a little old lady robbing a bank put a smile on your face.
