Who says that criminals have to look as bad as their horrible actions? Meet the "Mad Hatters," an all-female pickpocket ring made up of middle-aged and elderly women in Detroit who sport stylish hats:
"We know they're an organized group because when we looked at the incidents, the person suspected of stealing a wallet wasn't the person committing the fraud," Riley said. "We'd get a report of a white female in the area suspected of theft and then a black female would commit the credit card fraud.
"The common denominator between the suspects is that they all are wearing hats at the time of the theft and-or fraud, which has caused the group to be dubbed the 'Mad Hatters' by the financial institutions," the Sterling Heights Police Department said in a statement.
The hats run the gambit from floppy beach hats to a variety of berets colored black, white and blue.
If Hollywood doesn't come up with a movie inspired by this gang soon, I'll eat my hat: Link
