Androgynous Wig Wearing Person Attempted to Steal Pills From a Florida Pharmacy With a Bomb Threat
The Volusia County Sheriff's Office says the person pictured to the right attempted to steal pills from a pharmacy by making a bomb threat, but they may want to make sure no one burglarized Nicki Minaj's wig closet shortly beforehand.
Sheriff's deputies aren't particularly sure what gender the suspect is.
The incident occurred this Sunday morning at 5:55 a.m. at a CVS pharmacy in Deltona. The person apparently came into the store and started claiming that their children were being held hostage in the car.
The robber then claimed to have a bomb, and demanded that the pharmacy hand over prescription pills. He or she then pulled out a cardboard box from a handbag, and claimed it was a bomb. Though, according to a news release, the clerk on duty wasn't buying it as it appeared to be just "a plain box." The clerk ordered the suspect out of the pharmacy, and the green wigged person was gone by the time police arrived.
The news release also adds this:
Witnesses reported that the suspect appeared to be a cross-dressing man, but also said the robber had feminine-looking features. The suspect appeared to be Hispanic and approximately 30-years-old and 5'9" tall, with a thin build and wearing glasses and black lipstick. The clothing description included blue jeans, a green, long sleeve shirt and a green, shoulder-length wig. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office or Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida, toll-free, at (888) 277-TIPS.
Of course we have a couple theories as to why this person was wearing the green wig aside from having just snatched Nicki Minaj's weave. Perhaps they came from a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises and pulled together the world's most half-assed Joker costume at the last minute.
Or maybe they're a Deltona drag queen. (This is what we assume drag queens in Deltona would look like.)
