Tip For Wannabe Thelmas And Louises: Don’t Waste Your Time Googling "Tracking Device"

Brittney Sykes and Emma Westhusing had been talking about robbing a bank for about a month when the duo allegedly pulled a heist Monday at an Oregon credit union.

The weapon-free robbery netted them $1370--for 20 minutes, at least.

The novice criminals--Sykes, 23, handed the teller a note, while Westhusing, 19, drove the getaway car--were almost immediately undone by a tracking device that the teller placed among the 48 bills she forked over. An amusing U.S. District Court affidavit describes what happened when the duo found the suspicious device when they returned to Sykes’s house to count the loot.

Sykes (pictured above left) told investigators that she “went to a computer and searched the Internet to figure out what the device might be.” Panicking and assuming that the pair would be busted, Sykes “ran out to her car and hid the device.” It is unclear why she did not try to dispose of it somewhere besides underneath the driver’s side floor mat in her purple Hyundai Accent.

For her part, Westhusing said that when the tracking device was discovered, Sykes thought it was a dye bomb, “so she threw it against the wall.” Her cohort, she added, “then stomped on it, and then looked up what it was on the Internet.”

While the pair was busy Googling (“bank robbery tracking device,” presumably), Oregon cops were following a GPS signal to Sykes’s Portland residence. The women were arrested on a federal bank robbery charge.

This is more like Beavis and Butthead. MTV might have another useless show to put on their network. The one on the right needs to understand if it smells like tuna, it probably is!

What is with some of these "DOLTS"????
Sykes thought it was a dye bomb, “so she threw it against the wall.” Her cohort, she added, “then stomped on it", They thought it was a dye bomb, so they did everything they could to try to get it to explode in the apartment? Then one of them hid the device in her own car? Wow By the looks of these two they probably wouldn't know what to do with all those pieces of paper with pictures of "evil white oppressive hate mongering males" on it. ;)
What is it about the picture on the left that makes it so obviously apparent she was the one that entered the bank and the one on the right drove the getaway vehicle?
Shouldn't this read "evil white oppressive hate mongering breeder males"? After being water boarded, the actual truth came out, this is part of a larger plot by the evil Dr. Frankenolbermannstein and his idiot sidekick Igor Matthews to clone Rachel Maddow and create an army of radical whiny plaid wearing lesbians to rob banks in order to fund their asinine unwinnable war on Foxtopia....seriously, these two look like Maddows clones.
