From the Associated Press:
Two women have been charged with what police describe as a “Thelma and Louise”-style crime spree after officers discovered a van with loot in Los Angeles.
Police said Thursday that Myra Lopez and Latascha Bulmer went on a six-day string of carjackings, purse-snatchings and holdups after fleeing a halfway house over the Labor Day weekend.
Police say Lopez was wearing stolen diamond earrings when she was stopped last week in a minivan containing loot, including computers and a jewelry box filled with Mexican silver.
Bulmer was arrested the next day.
Both remained jailed Thursday after pleading not guilty to robbery and carjacking. Lopez also was charged with burglary.
Police say the parolees met in prison and fled an El Monte halfway house.
