Armed Robbery = Mother & Son quality time

 
 

 Georgia mom gets son and friends help rob bank

The band of misfits you see here are, Tawander Simmons (35), her son Benny Brice (17), David Rawlins (17) and Glenn Broom (18) all from Dekalb County, Georgia and they like to rob banks.

There are conflicting stories has to how the leader of the group Tawander, ended up with all three boys.  One source says she checked them all out of school on Friday, January 28th.  The school’s police say only Brice came to school and decided to leave because the other two had skipped.  Dekalb school officials later said none of the boys were in school on the 28th.     

Despite the differing stories what is fact is the Tawander and the three boys, robbed a Wells Fargo Bank, at gunpoint, at approximately 9 am on the 28th.  Tawander and two of the boys entered the bank and one of the boys remained outside in the getaway car.  Mom, armed with a handgun, approached a teller and demanded money.  The three robbers exited the bank, jumped in a red Toyota Corolla and led police on a high-speed chase, clocking speeds of up to 90 mph that ended with the car hitting an embankment and railroad tracks.  Oops, bet that wasn’t part of the plan.    

All four were arrested and charged with armed robbery.  I am not sure this is the kind of mother and son quality time that doctors and psychologist recommend.  I know… it’s not funny, but come on really, how in the hell did this woman even think they’d get away with this?  There are professional bank robbers that spend months, even years planning robberies and don’t get away.  She grabs up three teenagers and heads to local bank and thinks they’ll commit this crime and all go home richer.  Please!    

It is a shame that she thought it appropriate to ask not only her son but also two other teenagers to help her commit a crime that very easily could have cost them their lives.  She was an armed woman and they all could have ended up shot or killed in the car as it sped away.  Just crazy and careless!    

Thanks to Danielle Parada for the tip.

  1. Well, it is a part of a parent’s job to teach their kids how to make money to support themselves… maybe she was running a workshop for the neighborhood youth!

  3. I don’t want to encourage criminals of any kind, but bank robbers are truly the dumbest of the dumb. If you rob a bank with a gun you get very little money, you never get away with it anymore, and you face a stiff jail sentence when caught. If you rob a bank with a pen (through identity theft or phony checks) you can rack up a big score with little risk and get a slap on the wrist if caught. Other kinds of fraud (such as pyramid schemes and “alternative medicine” scams) can mean even bigger hauls with little or no risk of punishment.

    Again, not trying to encourage crimes of any kind. But if you must teach your children to commit crimes, make sure they’re white collar crimes!

      Can’t really manage a white-collar crime if they’re morons, though. While the evidence is continuously mounting that idiots and morons can manage to figure out how to work a computer and surf the net, most of them are too stupid to figure out how to use it to rob accounts (or get help from someone who can.)

      I mean, how hard is it to figure out how those Nigerian phishing scams work?

        That’s for sure. For example, every time some jackass comes on here and defends one of these worthless skels.

    • Or at least commit crimes that actually net some serious cash. common sense tells you that banks have cameras everywhere-and if the bank doesn’t the people do! camera phones, witnesses, etc….the days of dillenger and pretty boy floyd are long since past.

      The guy making the real swindles are at the top of their firms these days, not the bottom.
