Modesto Police detectives have captured a husband and wife described by officers as a modern-day "Bonnie and Clyde" following a daring daytime bank robbery Wednesday.

Jamey Robinson, 36, and his wife Patsy Lynd, 33, of La Grange were arrested Thursday at the Jackson Rancheria Casino in Jackson. Modesto Police said the couple were apprehended while gambling with money they had stolen the day before during a lunch-hour robbery at the Bank of the West on Oakdale Road in Modesto.

Authorities said a masked Robinson walked into the crowded bank with a sawed-off shotgun around noon Wednesday and made off with an undisclosed sum of money. Witnesses saw Robinson jump into a white Ford sedan driven by Lynd and recorded the car's license plate as the duo made their getaway.



Lovely.

[ The kicker of the news story is: "Modesto Police Detective Phil Owen said Robinson and Lynd were so engrossed in their gambling that they didn't notice the officers approaching to arrest them." - Ed ]
