Malice through the looking glass

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- A robber armed with a hand mirror plied her trade in front of the cameras Wednesday and police are hoping her performance can generate some finger-pointing.

The crime happened shortly before 10 a.m. at the 30th and Lake Walgreens.

Witnesses said the 6-foot bandit wearing a white hooded sweatshirt and sporting a black bandana on her head walked up to a register and displayed the hand mirror with a message written on it. There was no word what that message was but it prompted the clerk to open the cash register.

The crook took the money and left with a wave of the mirror.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Omaha Crime Stoppers at 402 444-STOP.
