Woman, 89, Dents Car With Cane, Helps Nab Pa. Duo
NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) - "Pennsylvania police say an 89-year-old woman used her cane to dent the car of two people who stole her friend's purse, and authorities were able to track down the getaway car based in part on the cane's imprint.
New Castle police Chief Thomas Sansone says the woman and her 82-year-old friend were accosted outside a pizza shop Sunday. Police say 27-year-old Jerry Brown Jr. grabbed the purse but couldn't peel away before the 89-year-old banged the car's trunk with her cane.
Police found the car, and, based on the description of the robber - and dents
matching the cane - arrested Brown and 21-year-old Tatiana Vargas.
The two are jailed in Lawrence County on robbery charges and on warrants for unrelated crimes. Online court records don't list attorneys for them."
It appears that senility and alzheimer’s didn’t play any meaningful role in the capture of two purse snatchers as an 89-year-old woman beat on the getaway car with her cane, after her 82 year old friend’s purse was snatched, the imprint of which was used to identify both the car and the purse snatchers.
It also appeared that the two purse snatchers were outlaw T-baggers that were ousted from the local membersgip of U.S. Unlimited, a fractured arm of the T-baggers TakeDownAmerica Association for not snatching enough purses in a month, but just needed the cash to buy dinner.
TakeDownAmerica spokesman Sarah Bachmann disputed the membership of the two purse-snatchers stating that no member of her association would resort to purse-snatching but only do banks and personal residences while working undercover as unpaid snitches for the F.B.I. The F.B.I. subsequently denied any knowledge of membership of a a purse snatching duo, or the two old women, but intimated that the C.I.A. may know the old women.
I think the 89-year-old woman should get the ‘Old Person’s Hero Of The Month Club’s’ prestigious award which is a gold replica of an old person walking across a busy highway waving a cane, which is hugely symbolic of today’s highways.
