It should have been the sexiest heist ever. Instead, a bikini robbery worth $200,000 turned into a farce.
At about 5:30am Sunday morning, police in Tustin, a suburb of Los Angeles noticed a suspicious white van outside a warehouse and saw that the warehouse fence had been cut open.
Eight hoodlums in their mid-20s and 30s had cut gaping holes in the warehouse front doors and threw as many designer label bikinis as they could into plasyic bin bags.
Two of the gand had stayed outside as lookouts in a separate vehicle but they fell asleep and did not notice police squad cars arriving with sirens off.
After noticing the police presence the robbers dumped the loot, jumped back in the van and took off on the 405 freeway. When the police gave chase the robbers reportedly jumped out of the moving vehicle and ran off on foot in an attempt to escape. Against a highly tuned police car on an interstate freeway even Usian Bolt would not have stood a chance.
Not surprisingly, the six dicks were all arrested and hauled back to where the sleepyhead lookouts were waiting, already cuffed.
A lawyer acting for the gang said they were not very experienced at robbery and the theft had been the idea of the gang's two female members, Guillermina Ventura-Moran, (33) and Norma Yaneli Sanchez, (26). The crime had been planned while all the gang members were attending a pool party the previous night.
