FORT WORTH - Police say it was not lady Luck's lucky day.
Sharon Ann Luck, 43, was arrested by police and FBI agents Wednesday morning after she robbed a Fort Worth bank, police say, and then went to her Burleson bank to deposit the stolen money.
A dye pack in her purse exploded.
Robbery Detective Mike Baggott said that shortly after 9 a.m. a woman walked into the Bank One, 6351 Camp Bowie Blvd., and handed a teller a note demanding money. After the teller complied, the woman fled with the note, an undisclosed amount of money and an unexpected surprise -- a dye pack with a delayed reaction.
"We're assuming the dye pack malfunctioned in the Bank One," Baggott said.
While investigating the Fort Worth robbery, police were notified by Burleson authorities that a woman had just walked into the First National Bank in Burleson when a dye pack in her purse exploded.
"She already had an account at the bank," Burleson police Sgt. C.P. Aaron said. "She may have just been attempting to deposit the money."
The woman fled but was arrested a short time later at a Fort Worth Home Depot after she called her boyfriend asking for help. The boyfriend got in touch with the bank.
"He called wanting to know if she had been in there and what had happened," Aaron said.
You might say she was caught red-handed.
Luck was being held Wednesday afternoon in the Tarrant County Jail on a federal hold.
Maybe she was trying to quick-finance an extreme makeover.
Luck sought her Fortune.
