In the Minneaapolis Star Tribune:
A suburban mom is accused of bringing her 20-month-old son along to two armed robberies, and she and a man were jailed on serious charges. According to the criminal complaints against Jessica L. Reich, 21, of Brooklyn Park, and Patrick L. Mobley, 21, of south Minneapolis:
About 10:30 p.m. Monday, a man was taking out the trash behind a home in the 3000 block of Pleasant Avenue S. when a man emerged from a car, pulled a handgun, ordered the victim to the ground and took his driver's license, check card and cell phone. The gunman fled in the car.
Nearby on Lake Street soon after, a woman was approaching the door to her home when a man walked up and pointed a handgun at her face. The man grabbed the woman's purse and shopping bag. The man ran to a car. Inside, the victim said, she saw a woman in the front passenger seat and a small child in the backseat. The victim reported the car's license plate to police, who traced it to a Brooklyn Park apartment building in the 5800 block of 73rd Avenue N., where Reich lives.
A car with that license plate was stopped, and police arrested Mobley and Reich. In the backseat was a small child, who was taken into protective custody. A search of the car found items from both victims and a .32-caliber revolver. Reich is charged with endangerment of a child, a gross misdemeanor.
Suppose this was how Ma Barker started out?
Speaking of guns, anyone watch the Sara Conner Chronicles last night???
