Women knocked herself out with bowling ball in faked robbery
To the Pla-Mor Lanes bowling alley in Decatur, Illinois, where employee Jamie L. Gordon, 30, is spark out on the floor. When she comes to, Jamie says she was hit on the back of her head by an unknown assailant who then stole $2,100 from the safe.
But when police review the CCTV they discover the truth, as one officer notes
“I observed Jamie walk into the office. Jamie walks over to the counter in the office and picks up a red bowling ball with her left hand and a cash drawer with her right hand. Jamie proceeds to strike herself twice in the back, left side of her head with the bowling ball.”
Asked where the money was, Jamie showed them $439 in her bag. The rest she says she’d invested in the bowling alley’s slot machines. Which makes us wonder why she didn’t use the ball to smash the CCTV cameras and the one-armed bandits…
