    Thumbs up Scarecrow Bandits Arrested After Chase

    Nice job - I heard part of this chase this morning, but didn't know what it was all about, since I had just entered Richardson & switched my scanner from Plano


    One Suspect Was Holed Up In Evacuated Plano Gas Station

    GARLAND, Texas -- Police say they have arrested four robbers from a group they refer to as the Scarecrow Bandits including one who was holed up in the bathroom of an evacuated Plano gas station.

    An attempted bank robbery in Richardson Monday morning led to a chase involving a white Cadillac. Investigators had identified the bandits and were waiting for them to make a move.

    The Cadillac was cornered and a first suspect arrested at a Walgreens parking lot at Jupiter Road and Interstate 635 in Garland before 10 a.m.

    A second suspect bailed out of the Cadillac and was arrested at a Dallas apartment.

    A third suspect was arrested at Jupiter Road and McCree Road in Dallas.

    A Costco in Plano was evacuated after a fourth suspect holed up inside of the store's bathroom in the 1700 block of Dallas Parkway. Police negotiated with the suspect and took him into custody by 10:45 a.m., NBC 5 reported.

    The evacuation did not affect area traffic.

    The Scarecrow Bandits are suspected of dozens of bank robberies across North Texas. They received their name because of the flannel shirts and floppy hats they wear.

    Ok Ok, which one of them was in the Wizard of Oz. At least they didn't set fire to themselves.

    Glad to see that they were all caught.

    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.
