BSO Grooming a Star in "Buxom Bandit"

Sometimes one bust leads to another. Broward Sheriff's Office hopes that the bust seen in this video helps them apprehend a full-figured woman who has been victimizing Broward teachers.

On May 27, the woman dubbed the "Buxom Bandit" is believed to have grabbed a wallet belonging to Latoya Wallace-Morrison, a third-grade teacher at Pinewood Elementary in North Lauderdale. The bandit appears to have tricked another teacher into letting her into Wallace-Morrison's locked classroom.

Then on June 10,

a wallet was found in Tot Park, on SW Fifth Street, that contained Wallace-Morrison's I.D. as well as two others. All three were Broward teachers. The video shows the Buxom Bandit using the teachers' bank cards.

Mind you, the Buxom Bandit should not be confused with the well-endowed identity theft suspect on the loose in Palm Beach County. Until these two suspects are caught, best to hold your wallet tightly if approached by a big-breasted lady.
