Hold the line; I'm robbing a bank

Hold the line; I'm robbing a bank

A woman recently robbed four Wachovia banks in Northern Virginia while talking on her cell phone...and you think cell phones in restaurants are annoying. Investigators say they don't know whether someone was actually on the other end of the line (Wachovia customer service, possibly?), but the robber kept her phone to her ear for the length of each holdup. Ironically, though, she showed a gun in only one of the robberies. So far, the suspect made off with cash, but she sounds like a future Darwin Award recipient to me.
