Police easily spot holdup suspect in unique outfit

Submitted By AP Wire Service

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP), Mar 18 - Police in Topeka, Kan., say one holdup suspect's unique outfit made it easy enough to find her - because she showed up hours later wearing the same clothes to watch the city's St. Patrick's Day Parade.

Radio station WIBW-AM reports the 26-year-old woman was taken into custody Thursday afternoon after an officer spotted her watching the parade along a downtown street.

Authorities believe she entered a convenience store around 3:30 that morning holding a screwdriver and demanding money from a clerk.

Surveillance tape showed her leaving the store in a bright blue warm-up suit with a broad yellow stripe - the same attire the officer noticed along the parade route hours later.
