Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

From the Silly news desk

News out of Hollywood Florida. The one suspect in drag was unable to give police the slip. High heels don't make for a fast getaway.

HOLLYWOOD – Three bank robbery suspects – one of them dressed as a woman – were arrested Monday morning after trying to flee with a bag of cash from the Bright Star Credit Union on Hollywood Boulevard, police said.

Here's what Detective Carlos Negron, police spokesman, said happened around 10:50 a.m. after officers received a silent bank alarm at the 4743 Hollywood Blvd. credit union:

An officer checking on the alarm was walking towards the bank when a blue GMC Yukon parked nearby suddenly took off at a high rate speed.

While using her radio to alert oncoming units, the officer came face-to-face with two of the robbers who had just exited the bank. One was dressed as a woman. The other was wearing a mask and holding a bag of cash. The officer ordered the suspects to stop, but they ran off.

One was apprehended a block away on Van Buren Street a short time later. The other, the one dressed as a woman, was arrested about eight blocks away, at Buchanan Street and 50th Avenue.

Meanwhile, the Yukon fled west on Hollywood Boulevard until it collided with a beige Toyota Camry, driven by an elderly woman, at U.S. 441. The Yukon then jumped a curve and came to rest in the parking lot of a gas station. The driver attempted to run off, but was quickly arrested.
