Woman dresses as clown for Halloween Eve bank raid
Police say they are hunting a woman who was dressed as a clown when she robbed a Virginia Beach, Virginia Bank of America the day before Halloween.
Police said the suspect is between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 7 inches tall, and weighs between 140 lbs. and 170 pounds. Her face was covered in white face paint and she wore a red, yellow and purple wig, police said. The suspect wore a multi-colored clown costume, a red or maroon undershirt, white gloves, and white shoes, police said. She also carried a blue backpack, police said.
Police are asking anyone with information about the crime to call 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
Now, the article also said the woman didn't claim to be armed and didn't appear to be carrying a weapon. So, what exactly intimidated the teller?
* the large shoes?
* the squirting carnation?
* the fright wig?
* the makeup?
* the polka-dotted outfit with the large collar?
* the red squeaky nose?
Or perhaps was it too many viewings of Stephen King's It???
Dammit, Mrs. cav borrowed my clothes again...
Hmmm, she has no alibi????
Maybe the teller was just afraid of clowns?
