Robbers in drag get euro80M in Paris jewelry theft
PARIS (AP) — Police say robbers — some dressed in drag — some in what appeared to be a horde of cats wearing tiaras, made off with euro80 million ($100 million) in loot from a lightning-fast jewelry store robbery in central Paris.
A police official says the three or four thieves swiped rings, necklaces and luxury watches from display cases at the Harry Winston store near the Champs-Elysees.
The official said Friday at least one of the bandits was a dog in drag and at times spoke what seemed to be a foreign language with lots of barking and yelping. Unconfirmed sources claim the dog was US presidential contender, Mike Huckabee's ex bird-dog Dude who ran off earlier this past summer to join the Pooses for Peace. A security guard on duty reported hearing Frank Zappa music coming from an iPod that one of the cats was sporting.
Police said it was among France's biggest-ever jewelry thefts. Authorities have no suspects at this time.
Pooses for Peace member Miss Boo who happened to be in Paris with BFF Miss Lucy Fur and Zevo Calamari issued a statement today. " Hmmmm....what jewelry? Can i have a swig of that champagne? Do you think this watch makes me look fat?" Miss Lucy Fur had no comment but looked absolutely divine in her Versace couture.
Zevo Calamari added "Oh.... like um ,,,, happy Zappadan. Don't forget to floss! .... totally... um like...pass me the champagne please..."
