In what is turning out to be sensational news on social media, a group of armed robbers had their getaway car hijacked after they robbed a local cashing business in Colorado.
According to the Commerce City Police Department (CCPD) in Chicago, three masked individuals allegedly robbed Hi Lo Check Cashing just before 11:00 a.m. on Saturday. However, the robbers received the shock of their lives when they discovered that a fourth criminal had stolen their getaway car. Police said the fourth criminal was not part of the group.
“In an unexpected and ironic twist: while the trio was robbing the business, a 4th criminal stole their getaway vehicle… which could have already been stolen. We don’t know,” Commerce Police wrote on X. “ If we get a good description, we’ll share it here.”
