Another sign of the Apocalypse Robbers, Criminals, and Drug Dealers use Scooters

Another sign of the Apocalypse is the rash of Scooter related crime. Google News keeps sending me things like Scooters are being stole, crime on a scooter, its getting kind of Crazy in America. Today some guys on a Vespa held up a store.
A few years ago I saw a movie where drug dealers were never stopped in their town because they delivered the drugs on Vespa scooters and pretended to deliver Pizza's. I don't know what it is about South Florida, but every Medicaid and Medicare doctor that scams the system is considered a reputable part of society despite giving clear signs that they are the worst offenders. Sign number one is they open an outpatient treatment center five blocks from their mansion and the first thing they do is buy a Ferrari. Same thing on South Beach drug dealers go out and buy a flashy car and the getaway car always seems to be a luxury vehicle. I live in the capital of money laundering in North America, you would think with all the repossessed and confiscated vehicles in South Florida these guys would know cops are looking for the flashy guy who is hiding money from some Banana republic. The last guy cops want to chase down is the guy on a scooter.  
The robberies occurred Sunday afternoon in the Museum District and Sunday night near Virginia Commonwealth University's academic campus.Richmond police searched Monday for a pair of armed robbers who struck at two convenience stores in the city, both times using a small motor scooter for their getaway.
There were no shots fired and no injuries in either robbery.
Capt. Michael Zohab said detectives believe both robberies were committed by the same suspects, who then got on a motor scooter and fled.
The scooter was described as either tan or off-white and possibly made by Vespa, an Italian manufacturer whose models generally produce maximum speeds of less than 40 mph.
"You certainly don't see them using scooters every day," Zohab said.
He said the first robbery occurred at 3 p.m. at the Patterson Market in the 3100 block of Patterson Avenue, where one of the suspects brandished what was described as a silver handgun and the clerk was ordered to hand over cash.
At 8 p.m., two suspects matching the description of the Patterson Market robbers walked in the Cary Street Mini Mart in the 1300 block of West Cary Street, near the southwest tip of VCU's Monroe Park campus, and robbed the business, again using a silver handgun and again escaping on a light-colored scooter.
One suspect, the gunman, was described as a light-skinned black male between 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 9 inches tall, wearing a tan hood with eye holes cut out and dark-colored clothing, including a denim jacket.
Detectives were continuing to question witnesses Monday in an attempt to develop a better description of the second suspect, who was initially described only as either white or Hispanic.
