Woman Robs Gas Station... to Buy Gas

Illustration for article titled Woman Robs Gas Station... to Buy Gas

I know we're often complaining about the high price of gas, but here's the proof that it's having an effect on the average consumer. A 65-year-old Michigan woman with no criminal record robbed a Sunoco with a toy-gun wrapped in electrical tape... only to drive three miles down the road to buy some gas.


Given there's probably a limited number of gray-haired bandits running around Novi, Michigan, the police were on the scene before she finished filling up. Grandma's out on bail but could face what's left of her life in the clink. [Freep]

@SQUABLOW and NOVALOAD: My thoughts exactly. I am visualizing an emaciated, greying crack'ho, possibly with neurosyphilis, driving the rusted out hulk of a 1970 Dodge Dart Swinger, and jabbering conspiracy theories about Michael Jackson and O.J. Simpson. You may laugh at my hypothesis, but I have driven in Michigan, and I assure you that there are more of these type of individuals puttering around on the roads there than you could possibly imagine.
