the Bonnie and Clyde bank

 robbers in custody

A Bonnie and Clyde like robbery spree started when Joseph Nieto, a 35 year old from California, alldedgedly robbed a Sinclair gas station in Greeley, Colorado. 

On December 15, 2009, alledgedly Nieto enlisted the help of Christina Drummond, a 23 year old also from California, to rob the Premier Cash Advance located at 3820 10th Street, in Greeley, Colorado.  The pair then robbed the Guaranty Bank and Trust on December 24th located at 930 11th Avenue in Greeley.

Bonnie and Clyde were a pretty smart pair.  They led law enforcement on an extended chase for many a moon.  Nieto and Drummond, on the other hand, waltzed into one of the banks they robbed, Nieto in the thinnest of disguises, and Drummond with no disguise at all.  A $10,000 reward for information leading to their arrest was shortly offered.

On January 12th, the two would be professional bank robbers hit again.  They robbed a bank in Los Banos, California  los banos, california  which is about 35 miles from Merced, California.  After looking at surveilance tapes, the authorities soon learned this was the same Bonnie and Clyde who had played the robbery game in Colorado.

Police and the FBI arrested two people in Burlingame on Wednesday, a quick dash down California I-5 to the Bay area.   Burlingame is a city in San Mateo County, located on the San Francisco Peninsula.   info on Burlingame, Ca

It does not take a rocket scientist to know robbing banks and getting away with it is an unlikely venture.  Bonnie and Clyde didn't get away with it, and law enforcement was not nearly as sophisticated as it is today.  In fact, one must wonder if Bonnie and Clyde would have attempted it then, had the odds been as high. 

You have to wonder what Drummond and Nieto were thinking.  Perhaps Nieto wanted his disguise to keep himself from being discovered, and Drummond thought Nieto's disguise was so lame there was not much point in coming up with one of her own?  Or pehaps Drummond was wanting to get caught so she could get away?

The Bonnie and Clyde bank robbers, Christina Drummond and Joseph Nieto are behind bars tonight.  We can all rest easliy now, having two dangerous and stupid bank robbers off of the street.

Everyone is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.  The opinions expressed here about the Bonnie and Clyde bank robbers are merely opinion and subject to error.
