We've been waiting for something exciting to happen in Ridgewood. Every week is the same "Is the party room in the Polish deli open yet? Do they have a disco ball?" Finally: a bank robbery to break the monotony
The Chase bank on Myrtle Avenue was robbed last week by an unlikely character late last week -- a 5-foot-5-inch, 115-pound woman who never even hung up her cell phone to rob the joint. (Sadly, it was not this Old West human-size frog holding a bag of money we managed to find on the Internet).
Apparently, the crook (approximate age 19–22) kept chatting away while she handed the teller a robbery note. After taking the bag o' cash, the little lady made her getaway in a pair of flip-flops with an unknown amount of money.
We would be totally excited that there's a hot lady running around town with a sack full of cash, but, dude, she talks on the phone when she's in line at the bank. Deal-breaker.
