LAPD Hunts for ‘Spiderman’ After Masked Man Steals $6000
Police are on the hunt for a person dressed as Spider-Man after the masked web-slinger snatched a paper bag filled with $6,000 in cash and credit card information from an employee of the Starlines Tour Bus company.
Friday morning, a worker was leaving Starlines Tour Bus corporate office on Hollywood Boulevard. That’s when a person in a Spider Man costume appeared and stole the paper bag.
Ever since, police have been rounding up other Spider Man impersonators in the area, who were “milling around” at the same time the theft occurred. This has led to several amusing photo ops for tourists, as the headquarters is located near the TCL Chinese Theatre, a tourist hotbed.
In any other part of the country, such a crime would be considered pretty outlandish. But on Hollywood Boulevard, no one noticed anything unusual, as a person in a Spider-Man costume grabbed the cash and presumably ran away.
No arrests have been made, but police say the investigation is ongoing.
