Woman uses bag of spaghetti sauce to rob bank
WPXI ^ | April 9, 2013 | Rick Couri

Bank tellers thought it was a bomb but it turned out to be a pasta topping.

A woman sat a bag of red liquid on the counter of the Fifth Third bank and demanded money.

The teller, not knowing what was in the bag gave her cash and the woman described to be in her 60's left the bank.

Once police and the bomb squad arrived at the bank in Clinton Township Michigan they were able to check the contents and confirm it was only spaghetti sauce and not a bomb.

Pretty inept (really, it was intentional) reporting... no mention of description that all the local LEOs might be interested in, or the local public, for that matter if they were intent on catching this person.

Just plain disgusting, duplicitous, underhanded, pre-meditated non-reporting.

If Marinara is outlawed, only outlaws will have Marinara.

I was laughing about how people are so naive that you can get money from them with spaghetti sauce, and then I remembered that all you have to do to rob the taxpayers is put “(D)” behind your name on the ballot.

Like most other Freepers I’ve fallen for the “spaghetti sauce bomb” gambit in the past. Only demolitions experts can tell the difference, which is why spaghetti sauce is a favorite with terrorists for disguising IED’s.

She certainly didn’t leave the bank penne-less.

I would venture to say she probably has a lot of (meat)balls to pull off something like this.

It wasn’t robbery if the teller freely gave her the money just because he didn’t know what was in the bag.

I would say it was just pricey pasta sauce.

We expect restraint by FR husbands regarding the weapons-grade spaghetti their wives make. It’s enough that the thoughts are there.

Thats amore’. Were the noodles al dente! Man the italian bank robbers down there in the Lower Peninsula use canned sauce. The bank robbers up here in the Upper Peninsula at least use a helmet and an ATV. The credit union is no longer in existence because of that bank robbery. The culprit is still at large.
