Woman tries to curl one off in bank

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A BUNGLING ban­dit tried to rob a bank with a CURL­ING iron.

So­nia Wat­son ( above), 41, and her son walked into the bank with cloths over their faces, but pulled them down when they re­al­ized there were cus­tomers in­side.

Af­ter the cus­tomers left, the halfwit pair pulled their cloths over their faces again and an­nounced the hold-up, as Wat­son bran­dished the curl­ing iron.

Once work­ers spot­ted what the ‘weapon’ was they re­fused to hand over the cash and fought back with plas­tic bot­tles and chairs.

How­ever, Wat­son and her son were able to get to a cash drawer be­fore tak­ing off with around £200.

The crooks were later eas­ily iden­ti­fied as Wat­son had been in the same bank in Toledo, Ohio, re­cently to have her tax forms checked.

The pair are still on the run.

A spokesman for the lo­cal po­lice said: “These two rate about as high as you can get on the chart for crim­i­nal stupidy.”
