Apparently we need to rethink that whole Bonnie and Clyde thing when it comes to today's bank robbers.
A West Deptford BB&T bank was stuck up by three people – a woman and two men – shortly after 11 a.m. Wednesday.
One man wore a black dress.
Another man carried a pocketbook.
And the woman toted a long silver-plated revolver.
One man is described as black, muscular, standing between 6 feet 2 inches and six feet four inches. He was wearing a black dress, a black facial cover, and a gray sweatshirt, according to police. He had a gun.
The other man, who carried a purse, was described as black and 6 feet tall with a thin build, in his early 20s. He also wore a black face cover. He also carried a handgun.
The woman is described as black, 5 feet 5 inches tall, and in her late 20s to early 30s. She wore a dark face covering and carried a gold yellow handbag.
Police said her weapon was a long silver revolver, with a wood handle.
The trio entered the bank, located at Kings Highway and Parkville Road, on Wednesday morning.
They ordered the employees into a room where the bank vault was located and took an undisclosed amount of cash.
The robbers fled on Kings Highway in a champagne-colored 2006 Chevy Equinox.
The Deptford police – and maybe even the fashion cops – are on the lookout, and have released a surveillance image in the hopes that the public can identify the suspects. Anyone with any information should contact the West Deptford Police Department at 856-845-2300.
