ARVADA, Colo. – Police in a Colorado town say they've caught two "thong bandits" who used women's underwear to disguise themselves during a convenience store robbery.
Joaquin Rico, 19, turned himself in on Friday, two days after his alleged accomplice, Joseph R. Espinoza, 24, turned himself in.
A surveillance video released last week by police in Arvada, Colo., shows two unarmed men inside the convenience store. They stole an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes in the May 16 robbery.
One man wore a green thong and the other wore blue. Each thong barely covered the man's nose, mouth and chin and left the rest of the face exposed. One also wore a pink backpack in which he stuffed the stolen items.
