Markedly less attractive without their hair and make-up...
In Kocaeli, L.Ş. (31) and B.C. (25) put on blonde wigs and dressed up
like women to rob TIR (tractor-trailer) drivers. Last month in Gebze
and Körfez, the pair went up to TIR drivers resting in parking lots along
the highway and propositioned them. Thinking they would have
relations with the "women", the drivers were instead robbed and the
The one driver they didn't fool.
Police eventually caught L.Ş., who had a record for 6 previous incidents
of this kind, and B.C., who had 15 (!), in Pendik, Istanbul. The suspects
had robbed one TIR driver of 2,500 TL in Körfez and another of 1,000
TL in Gebze. In their statements to police, the suspects said that they
didn't need the money, they just dressed up like women and robbed the
drivers for fun (!).
