A burqa-wearing man -- pretending to be a woman -- is in police custody after an armed robbery and dramatic police chase yesterday afternoon, the Creeping Sharia website reports today (April 27, 2013).
Police say around 3 p.m. Harford County Sheriff's deputies were called to Third Base Liquors on South Fountain Green Road in Bel Air for a report of a robbery. When officers arrived witnesses told them a man wearing a burqa covering his entire face -- except for his eyes -- entered the store and asked the clerk about beer.
Police say the man altered his voice to sound like a woman and chose a case of beer. As the clerk leaned over to pick up the beer, the fake lady flashed a gun and announced a holdup. The clerk gave the burqa-wearing female impersonator an undisclosed amount of cash and the robber left the store and jumped into a white SUV.
A short time later, police saw the SUV in Edgewood and attempted to stop it. As the Divine wannabe fled west on Route 40, he clipped a car and lost control. The man was critically injured and taken to Shock Trauma for treatment. Police have not yet identified the driver.
