Did she get 70 cents for every dollar a male thief gets?

AAAAhahahahahaha... Thanks, JJ, I needed that!!! ; )

It says she was wearing a red Cincinnati baseball hat. If you're going to rob an establishment, why would you wear distinctive clothing that could put you at the scene of the crime? Never have understood that, but what do I know. I'm just a law-abiding citizen. ; )

Pearl: the cap may have been a "false flag" designed to mislead.

Similar to claiming "I'm just a law-abiding citizen"
