A woman tried to rob a jewelry store disguised in a black trash bag, using a wheel chair as her getaway vehicle last week.
Security camera footage shows 44-year-old Noemi Duchene and 45-year-old Luis Del Castillo arriving outside of Estate & New Jewelry late Tuesday morning with Del Castillo pushing Duchene in her wheelchair.
Duchene then gets out of her chair, covers her head and upper body with a large black trash bag and enters the jewelry store while Del Castillo waits with the chair. Once inside Duchene pulls a kitchen knife and demands “everything”. Store owner Linda Bradely decided not to comply and drew a stun gun in response. “We’re chasing each other around like keystone cops,” Bradely recalls. “I knew I could outrun her because she was obviously not very quick.” A store customer eventually tackled Duchene and held her until police arrived.
