Could these two be responsible for the Post Office robbery?

Could the one with "frizzy hair" be responsible for the bank robbery?

How could they have done the Post Office burglary if they have been arrested and are not out on bail?! Unfortunately there are more than 2 derelicts out there!

I always wondered about when stolen credit cards are used at gas stations. When I use my card at gas stations I always have to enter the billing zip code before it can be used. Do all credit cards or gas stations not have this restriction in place? I can't remember the last time I did not have to enter my zip code before pumping gas.

If you rob A guy walking around a neighborhood it is pretty easy to guess what his zip code is. There aren't that many for Palo Alto. Sounds like they weren't as dumb as they look.

I'd love to know what was objectionable about my earlier comment.
Thanks for your censorship, PA Online.

Was it politically incorrect?
Perhaps you can e-mail me privately.
