Bonehead Criminals

I love this story.

Two pennsylvania natives are behind bars, accused of robbing the Pecan Island Food Store Sunday.

Eric Larocco and Amanda Matusick were both booked on armed robbery charges. In addition, they were charged with shoplifting and possession of drug paraphernalia.

When the store owner found out he was robbed, he contacted a Sherriff's Deputy and asked all the bridges be raised to prevent the robbers from leaving the area. The two were stuck on the island and couldn't go any further once they reached the Little Prairie Bridge.

Deputies met the suspects and recovered the money and weapon. They were both arrested on the scene.

I can just picture the sheriff casually driving down the highway without even putting his lights on and rolling up behind the robbers at the drawbridge. "Yer in a heap o' trouble boy!"

Too funny.
