OK – the bomb turned out to be 2 jars of spaghetti sauce

Hey – it could’ve been more dangerous

A woman who was caught red-handed with two jars of spaghetti sauce [har!] after robbing a bank has pleaded guilty to bank robbery and explosives charges.

According to police on April 6, Ophelia A. Neal told a clerk at the Fifth Third Bank in Clinton Township that she had a bomb in a cloth bag and demanded money.

Neal, 53, a parole absconder who has previous convictions for fraud, marijuana possession and assault, made her escape with an undisclosed amount of cash in a car driven by a man.

She was later arrested by police who scanned the cloth bag and discovered it contained two cans of spaghetti sauce.

Although the bank robbery occurred in Macomb County, Neal pleaded guilty in Oakland County Circuit Court where she was originally wanted for violating her parole.

I can think of some supermarket brands of spaghetti sauce might be as dangerous to your health over time – as a bomb. 🙂
