Truly dumb crook

A woman charged with robbing more than $11,000 from a Waukegan bank was captured less than 40 minutes later after leaving, among other clues, her personal debit card on the teller’s counter, according to a criminal complaint filed by the FBI.

Kimberly Ramirez not only left her debit card, she wrote her demand note — “give me what you got” — on the back of a prescription made out in her name and left it at the Consumers Credit Union, 2750 Washington St., around 12:57 p.m. Monday, according to the complaint.

When Waukegan police arrived at her apartment building at about 1:30 p.m., Ramirez was outside her unit and told police she’d locked herself out.Inside the apartment, police found almost $10,000 as well as a black hat, sunglasses and black purse identical to the ones worn by the bank robber, according to a criminal complaint.
