Bank raids grow increasingly daring...

14 May 2009

Imagine returning home to find you’ve lost your wallet – and you weren’t drunk. Pretty silly, huh? Yes. Except this is exactly what happened to Donna Mansfield as she strode soberly home from her local Lloyd’s TSB bank in Lancashire, only to realise she’d made the mistake of leaving her cash-filled purse right inside the bank.

Of course though, it was a bank and probably perfectly safe. Who in their right mind would steal something inside a bank? What, with all that CCTV? All those trained personnel and security buttons?

A random old woman using a mobility stroller, of course! And so adamant is she that nobody could ever stop her brazen illegality, she makes sure to look defiantly in the face of CCTV cameras before wheeling herself off into the broad light of day.

Police leapt on the case, with the astute observation, “her lack of mobility would suggest she is a local." But crime-victim Donna could only calm her nerves with the chance that the pensioner wouldn’t have already died of old age by the time she was caught, thus allowing her to "strangle whoever took the purse.”
