Robber's bum rap

An alleged bank robber was caught as she tried to raid the same branch twice - when a witness identified her by her big bum.

Police say Sandra Meiser, 26, got away with a £12,000 robbery in Norf, western Germany, after threatening bank staff with a gun.

Witnesses told officers that the raider was a woman with a "very large" backside and "powerful thighs".

Then weeks later one witness found himself behind what he believes to be the same bottom as they stood in a queue at the same branch.

"He called the police and they arrested her and found her ski mask and hand gun in her jacket. He said he recognised her bottom straight away - he'd never forget something that big," said one bank worker.

Now Meiser is facing up to 10 years in jail on robbery and firearms charges while the 61-year-old witness has landed a £4,000 reward.
