How Not to Celebrate Star Wars Day

How did you celebrate May 4th better known as Star Wars Day?


Hopefully not this way:
VANCOUVER - ...A woman wearing a Star Wars Darth Vader mask has been arrested following an early morning robbery in Vancouver, said VPD spokesman Randy Fincham.

Fincham said at around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, a 23 year-old woman was walking down Wolf Avenue near Oak Street when she was robbed by a woman wearing a Darth Vader mask and carrying what looked like a handgun.

The masked robber pointed the gun at the woman and demanded her cash. After receiving a small amount of money, the suspect ran off. The victim was not injured.

After the victim called 911, police then found the woman a short distance away, still wearing the Darth Vader mask, and she was arrested. Fincham said the suspect was searched and found to be carrying a replica firearm…
Ok, so this incident occurred on Tuesday and not Sunday.

But maybe she was hosting a blow-out Star Wars party in its 48th hour and really needed the cash to restock the cheese ball and pretzel bowls for the Jawas?

I just can't envision Lord Vader wielding anything but a lightsaber though.

Well...that's an interesting way to get dressed for a robbery. I know masks aren't allowed in public in a lot of places, so maybe she thought she could get away with it on Star Wars Day?

What amazes me is she stayed in the costume. Did she think the victim wouldn't report her????

I read so many "May The 4th be With You" messages and wasn't surprised to see the "Revenge of the 5th" the next day. lol

Makes you wonder where some people's brains are -- after committing a robbery in such a get-up, you'd think she would ditch it fast so as not to be easily recognized. Lord Vader would have fired her.
