Should Have Worn A "Klown" Suit

A Bethlehem [PA] Township woman was charged early Saturday with putting on a red nose and clown suit Friday morning and robbing the KNBT Bank three miles west of her house.
Carolyn A. Williams, 43, of 4321 Embur Terrace was arraigned at 1:30 a.m. on charges of robbery, theft and receiving stolen property in the Friday heist in which she allegedly took more than $7,000 after telling a bank teller she had a bomb.
Williams, a mother of two, was sent to Northampton County Prison under $500,000 bail, according to township police Investigator Stephen B. Malitzki Jr.
Within minutes of the 10:35 a.m. robbery of the bank on 3933 Freemansburg Ave. in Bethlehem Township, police said they arrested Williams as she sat with a clown suit and cash in a parked car at the township Municipal Park Complex.
Williams said she was coerced into the robbery, and police are looking into the story to see if it is credible, said Bethlehem Township Police Sgt. Gregory J. Gottschall. He would not say who Williams claimed had forced her to commit the heist. "She wasn't clear about that," Gottschall said.

No one could have coerced a Klown.
