In the sleepy and overpriced suburb of Walnut Creek, CA, some suburbos tried to sell hoodies in a Target parking lot to people they met on Craigslist. When it came time to do the deal, two asian teenagers pulled up in black Lexus, thrust a silver handgun in the seller’s faces and said, “this is how we’re gonna do this.” Reports the SFGate:
- “The first suspect, who was the driver, was described as 5 feet 6 inches tall, 130 pounds, and was wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and a gold “grill.”
The second suspect was described as 5 feet 8 inches tall, 145 to 150 pounds, and was wearing a white ball cap with the word “Vietnamese” on it and a white T-shirt.”
As the teens pulled away with the eleven jackets, they flashed a gang sign and declared, “This is West Pittsburg.”
Lest you think the crooks are either unfamiliar with an atlas or are repping the steeler town on the west coast, there is a Pittsburgh northeast of Walnut Creek.
Wth the prudence of wearing hooded jackets dropping in face of the rising heat wave, Craiglist may have the last laugh.
