Ah, life in the desert outskirts of Los Angeles. This incident happened this morning in Victorville when a 5'7" 200-pound Caucasian man gave a note to a teller that implied a threat if he did not receive some money. So far, no arrests, but not to fear, we hear barnyard animals are good crime stoppers. That's because of another great headline: "Barnyard animals help nab burglar." A suspect burgler Thursday in nearby Pinon Hills hid inside a building by a barn. Police were tipped off because all the animals were "fixated" on the building. "The donkeys, the geese and then pigs were just staring at this building," an official said.
