    Yet another sensational ArlNOW crime headline story involving a black transvestite. The last one highlighted – with picture – by ARLNOW occured at Pentagon City. Is the purpose of the story to report the crime or to make fun of black transvestites?

    • Believe it or not, we have no control over the race and gender identity of people who commit crimes in Arlington County.

        Good reply.

      • That’s a total lie. You have complete control.

        • brendan

          shhhhh. they’re watching.

    • V Dizzle

      You’re really reaching in order to be outraged. It’s a unique story for a lot of reasons.

    • CW

      He highlights one or two items from the crime report each week. The rest of this week’s report is boring. Besides, all he did was quote the police report. Get over it.

    • OX4

      I think it’s even weirder that you’re keeping track of headlines about black transvestites.

    • Michael H.

      I took it as making fun of two oddball criminals. No one knows if that guy wears women’s clothing on a regular basis. I think most people would assume that he only wore those clothes to help disguise him during his crime.

      I just hope those two get caught. Bizarre incident.

      SoCo Resident = Serial Tranny Robber???

    • BoredHouseWife

      Lighten up, Francis.

    • black trannie

      SoCo Resident, just put on your heels and walk proud like me.

  • Lou

    Carried a [fake] LV purse


  • KalashniKEV

    The Bandito in the cowboy hat sooooo would have had it if it wasn’t for black trannies.

  • Boom! Roasted

    5’2″, 185? Would not want to see her trying on lingerie.

    • brendan

      or sitting in the front row of American Idol…

    • G::TheNativeArlingtonian

      I am still trying to figure out how either her or partner got away. She’d roll faster than run. Did the employee call the police? And this is what Arlington calls progress in our little urban village…

    • JamesE

      bowling ball!

  • Janel

    I’m still wondering how they knew her exact weight.

    • Michael H.

      I thought about that too. At first I wondered if she had been measured at the store for a garment. But that wouldn’t make sense for someone intending to rob the store. Or maybe she was measured and tried to sneak out of the dressing room with some items, and that’s when the clerk chased them.

  • Been There

    Black trannies are NOTORIOUS for shoplifting. I worked retail in Georgetown and all the black trannies would come in with knives and mace and try to steal things. My manager used to swing the arms off the manequins and chase them out of the store.

    My guess is this “guy” dresses like a “girl” all the time. So much for playing down stereotypes.

    • Lacy Forest

      He chased them out of the store with mannequin arms? That is hilarious. Shame there is no video.

    • TryingHardGuy

      I’m trying hard to figure out whether you’re joking.

  • Mike

    Caution: The suspect is believed to be armed, and fabulous!

    • R0bespierre

      I lol’d
