Chatty Bank Robber Doesn't Bother To Stop Mobile Phone Conversation

from the so-much-to-talk-about dept

We all know some people who always seem to be on their mobile phones yakking away. And, whether or not you believe that talking on the phone is somehow distracting from other stuff, it appears that one woman doesn't let all that talk get in the way of her... er... day job. She's been seen robbing a series of banks across Virginia all while still talking on her mobile phone. There is the theory, of course, that she's not actually talking to someone, allowing the phone to act as a prop which takes away suspicion as she enters a bank. Of course, that's not as much fun as wondering just who she's talking to.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    No Subject Given

    She's probably on the phone with an outsourced tech support and she's robbing the bank to pay for the call.

    haha thats funny. anywho...

    My theory is she is creating an alliby for if she is ever cought, pluss it doubles as a good "normaliser".

    See, when she gets cought, she can just claim that there was some evil bad guy at the other end of the phone, who had kidnapped her son, and she had to rob 5 or 6 banks for him or else!
    Well its a theory anyway.
