Pistol Packin’ Granny Strikes Again! And Again!

FONTANA (CBS) — Fontana’s so-called “Granny Bandit” has apparently struck for a second and third time.

Her latest stickup reportedly came Tuesday, as police confirmed she tried to rob someone at a Walmart.

On Monday night, it was reported that the suspect, described a woman in her 80s wearing a flowered scarf, brandished a gun and held up a Target shopper in the store’s parking lot.

That incident was nearly identical to her first reported robbery on Mother’s Day this past Sunday, when the gun-toting granny robbed a woman who is 9-months pregnant in a Kohl’s parking lot.

Police said she tried to rob another woman Tuesday at a Fontana Walmart, but she was unsuccessful in this latest robbery.

Her latest hold-up attempt may have been caught on surveillance video.
