Detroit Area Plagued by Group of Lady Pick-Pockets and Purse Snatchers


Reports from four Michigan counties and going back at least one year have the public and police on guard over a granny crime spree called the Mad Hatters.
The biggest problem is bad checks stolen from unattended purses have banks covering losses up to a total of $500,000.

There is no Mad Hatter Strike Force, so each county is handling the problem without tips from other counties.
So far, reports are in from Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Washtenaw counties.

Released surveillance photos haven´t led to any significant tip-offs from the public. Some feel that the culprits aren´t all elderly women but at least one was a man in disguise. He deposited the stolen checks and then tried to make a withdrawal.

  Deroit has a lot more issues then this!  
I´m from Michigan and this is the least of my concern when I go into Detroit. I´m more worried about the gang bangers and crack heads.

I don´t ever go into Detroit without my GLOCK 23 or my Kimber Custom II 1911!
