Woman Faces Charges For Robbing Bank With Can Of Sauce
We don’t know who’s more stupid…the woman for thinking she can get away with robbing and bank with spaghetti sauce or the people at the bank for actually believing it was a bomb?
According to Freep.com and NewsOne
It turns out that a woman had spaghetti sauce—not a bomb— when she robbed a bank in Clinton Township Saturday. Police say 60-year-old Ophelia Neal, placed a cloth bag on the counter of the Fifth Third Bank at 34564 Harper Road just before 11:30 a.m and demanded money from the teller saying there was a bomb inside the bag.
“It did look like there was a hard object in there,” Clinton Township Lt. Eric Reincke said. “But it was folded over so you couldn’t see what was inside.” Bank employees left and the Michigan State Police bomb squad scanned the bag. “It turned out that it was a couple of cans of spaghetti sauce inside the bag,” Reincke said.
“If you don’t know what’s in a package… you have to treat it like it is possibly an explosive device.” The woman left in a silver, older style boxy-car driven by a man, police said. Nobody was injured and it’s not clear how much money she got away with. “We’re still developing suspect information,” Reincke said. “But we do think we have a pretty good lead on a suspect.”
Anybody with information is asked to call Captain Richard Maierle at 586-493-7857.
We’re betting she didn’t get a good tax refund check or else she wouldn’t have to rob a bank with a can of spaghetti sauce. SMH
