Woman allegedly robbed bank for love
A Virginia woman was taken into custody after police say she tried to pay off her boyfriend's child support using money stolen from a Maryland bank, the Washington Examiner reports.
Crystal Marie Lowney was identified as the suspect in the May 11 armed robbery of the Bank of Clarke County in Kernstown after Frederick County authorities said they received tips from residents. Those tips led Frederick police to believe the 20-year-old was on her way to Shenandoah County, and they notified authorities there.
Later that day, Lowney appeared in the Shenandoah County courthouse with a pile of cash and tried to use the money to pay off her boyfriend's child support. Authorities spotted her and took her into custody.
Police said her boyfriend, who was not identified and is currently in the Shenandoah County jail, owed $4,000 in child support. While authorities wouldn't say how much cash Lowney allegedly stole from the bank, they noted she didn't have enough to cover the entire child-support bill.
