Premium Robbery At Outlet Mall

by The Editors on July 26, 2008

The driver of a limo-van who had just dropped people off at Legoland and the Carlsbad Premium Outlet Mall Friday night July 25, 2008 was bound and robbed at gun-point by a black man 20-30 years old, medium build 5 feet 8 inches tall, according to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The driver had dropped other customers from Los Angeles at LegoLand before going to the outlet mall. As he waited, a man walked up to him, pointed a pistol at him and ordered him into the back of the van, Sgt Keith Blackburn said. . . . The gunman bound the victim’s ankles and wrists with plastic zip-ties. He took the victim’s bank teller machine card, ordered him to reveal his secret code, and drove him to several banks over the next hour.

The limo driver was dropped back off at the outlet mall where a passerby was able to free him from his Zip ties. No one was hurt and it wasn’t clear how much money the robber got. That sort of thing is not supposed to happen here. Seriously.
