Video Surveillance Documents Crimes, Poor Fashion & Horrible Judgment
Every time a consumer pulls out of a gas station the natural inclination is to think that he or she has been robbed. Sometimes, they really have been robbed. The A.P. has reported that surveillance video shows a thief forcing a woman to fill his SUV with gas in Salt Lake City. The woman was pumping gas Sunday morning when a man allegedly stuck a gun in her back and ordered her to fill up his SUV. Salt Lake City police Detective Jared Wihongi said, "This is definitely not common." The woman put $15 of gas in the other vehicle's tank before her debit card reached its limit. Surveillance video showed two men in a large, white sport utility vehicle with Wyoming license plates. If caught, the crooks could face aggravated robbery charges (not to mention what other charges they may face for driving a gas guzzling SUV.) The woman didn't call police until about three hours later.
In unrelated video, a man in a pink shirt and beige ball cap was caught on video tape as he tried to get into the Pope mobile. What was he thinking? Pink and beige do not go together. Just ask Lindsey Lohan and her friend, Entertainment Tonight star Vanessa Minnillo, as they know all about getting caught on unflattering video.
