BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Because there isn’t anything fiercer than a mother protecting her loved ones, we give you the story of a woman from California who managed to outsmart a gun-toting robber posing as an undercover agent. The incident occurred on Sunday in the City of Industry.
California Mom Distracts Fake Cop Going Through Her Purse
The heroine of this story is a mother of three who wished to remain anonymous. According to the California mom, at around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, she and her husband drove to a nearby food trailer to grab a bite to eat. The woman said that she spent most of the day at the waterpark with her husband and four children.
Now, this is where things get interesting. According to the woman, while she and her family ate their meal next to their car, an individual approached them. The California mom declared that the individual looked ominous.
According to the woman, the man flashed a gun and told them that he’s an undercover police officer. He also showed them a police ID to prove that he’s really in law enforcement. However, the California mom quickly figured out that the individual wasn’t a police officer.
So, she started thinking about how to make the individual go away. According to the authorities, the woman offered the fake police officer a taco and told him that she must go to the food trailer to grab some napkins. All this time, the robber, later identified by the authorities as Juan Rodriguez, was going through the woman’s purse.
The California mum went to the food trailer server and calmly told him not to look in the direction of her car. She also told him that the man standing next to the van is trying to rob her family. The server called 911.
In a matter of minutes, Rodriguez was in custody. Apparently, at the sight of the police, Rodriguez tossed the weapon into the family van and attempted to drive off.
