From the NY Post:
A cross-dressing bank robber made off with next to nothing after he got all dolled up, police said yesterday.
The 5-foot-6, 130-pound man came wearing a black wig, hot pink jumpsuit, black trench coat and black sunglasses.
He sauntered up to a teller at the TD branch on Northern Boulevard near 72nd Street in Jackson Heights at 3:20 p.m. on Jan. 13, cops said.
He passed a note reading, "You know what this is. Put the money in a bag. No dye pack. Don't press the alarm."
The teller shoved shredded, unusable bills into a penny bag and handed it to the thief, who looked inside, said "this is not a lot of money" and fled the scene.
And also from the NY Post:
Two Queens crooks posing as filmmakers starred in a live remake of "Dumb and Dumber," trying to hawk a rented $72,000 movie camera rig on Craigslist for a fraction of the price, law-enforcement sources said.
But the hapless thieves - Omar Tineo, 23, and Robert Perez, 22 - wound up trying to sell the high-end digital camera to undercover cops, who spotted it online Wednesday and set up a sting, the sources said.
