A 51-year-old thought he (or she) was a criminal mastermind in disguising as a woman and arresting a bank, but after also stealing a police cruiser, which led to a two-county car chase, he’s behind bars, none-the-richer.
That’s right, Gumersindo Reyes got dolled up in a gold dress, equipped with a red wig, long-sleeve shirt and some big-ass white sneakers, entered a Casselberry-based Chase Bank, and passed a note to the teller that ‘demanded money’.
He left the bank, carrying an undisclosed amount of cash. However, he stupidly ditched his getup behind a bush, where a Seminole County deputy noticed the ‘bizarre’ behavior and intervened.
He failed to subdue Reyes with a stun gun, but chased him into a nearby apartment complex. At that point, the deputy then went to draw his firearm, causing a struggle as Reyes attempted to grab it from him.
That is when Reyes ran off, jumped in the deputy’s cruiser and took off.
Reyes then led police on a chase that extended from Seminole County to Orange County, before crashing into a car, where police then apprehended him.
He faces a log list of numerous charges, including big ones like, battery of an officer, resisting arrest with violence and robbery with a firearm.
Reyes, who has a criminal past, including attempted murder in Puerto Rico, is currently in jail and, the unfortunate part for him, he can’t use any of the money he stole for a good lawyer, because he’ll need one.
