Cell Phone Bandit Captured!

Candy, Candy, Candy. Why? Why oh why did you rob banks on your cellphone? We just want to know why you couldn’t hang up the important call with your mother and just rob the bank like a normal crook? We understand that it’s possible you may have been coerced by the two men that were arrested with you, but seriously, girl, Bank Robbery?

Better yet, why did you even bother to pay your HOV ticket when you’re about to become a wanted felon? That one I just don’t get…

But yes, the world is now safe from cellphone bandits, as Candice Martinez was arrested early this morning as the cellphone robber, down in Springfield along with two other men. Her immediate family was shocked and horrified, as they thought she’d come to stay with extended family members.

    Very weird and fascinating. A sign o’ the times.

    I think she was just on the phone with her boyfriend … really it’s pretty smart … at least they could stay in contact to make sure things were going smoothly. Not that I have lots of bank robbing experience ;-)

    It would have been way sillier if, for instance, they’d had some of those stupid Nextel walkie-talkie phones.
    *BEEP* Did you give them the note yet?
    *BEEP* No, I’m still in line.
    *BEEP* Damn, how long does it take to rob a bank these days?
    *BEEP* The last bank we robbed was much faster.

    and so on …
