How could anyone be surprised by her/him? Look at the purse and skirt combination. UGH!

Not really a original plan, but he seems to have gotten away with it, for now. Go get him officers and put him in a cage where he belongs!!!

Did anyone check his ID or passport. He may not be an American and who knows he /she might be a cross dresser or something. But most likely the ensemble is borrowed from a family member. Mom, look in your closet. Looks more like a thrift store special. Bet he wasn't wearing heels-wobble in-stumble out-the purse tells the story of unprepared. Women carry around purses big enough to carry a lot more money out the door. Doesn't say what type weapon was employed. Probably didn't have one. Got enough money now to go buy a nice pistola-go rob in style.
