Police on lookout for bearded-lady bandit

FORT PIERCE, Fla. - A woman in Fort Pierce may have gotten away with $2,800 by the hair of her chinny chin chin.

Literally.

A 51-year-old man told Fort Pierce police a woman sporting "facial hair" stole his wallet May 10 in what could be called a hair-raising experience, according to a recently released report. The wallet contained $2,800, credit cards and the man's driver's license.

The female with facial hair flagged the man down at Avenue D and North 6th Street, the man told police. She got in his van and asked for a ride to a house.

While waiting for a light to change, the woman with the hair on her mug reached in his right front pocket and took his wallet. She got out of the van and ran.

The report didn't indicate whether the woman's "facial hair" constituted a moustache, mutton chops, Vandkye, five-o-clock shadow, peach fuzz, sideburns, goatee, soul patch or flowing ZZ Top-style beard.

She also is described as being 25 to 30 years old and heavy set. The woman wore a white shirt, blue jeans and a white rag on her head.

The wallet with credit cards and driver's license later was found.
