    Bill Murray in Quick Change robs a bank dressed as a clown. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100449/

    I love the description - 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

    How could she have forgotten the big red rubber nose! ;)

    I couldn't tell if she was a "happy " clown or a "sad" clown.

    With it being Halloween here in the U.S., I'm sure we'll be hearing more stories like this one.

    Well, she's probably happy now, since she's managed to get away.

    With this hitting the news, I'm sure anyone dressed up walking into a bank today or tomorrow is going to get a little extra attention.....

    I'm wondering if there will be any copycats. And its amazing that she got away in a cab!

    I found that interesting also, that she took a cab to and from the bank to commit a robbery. As far as I can remember that is a first. Wonder if they put any dye with the money bag. From the photo her makeup didn't really hide her features all that well. With the ability now to digitally enhance photo's a wanted picture probably won't be far behind.
