A team of cleaning ladies in France sick to death of their pay and conditions decided to start robbing supermarket and shop tills using an ingenious invention, their Hoovers.
They did a series of day-light robberies dressed in aprons and masking their faces with dusters. After entering the shops they sucked the money out of the tills with high-powered Hoovers driven by a mini generator outside in their getaway car, a BMW (Brushes, Mops and Wet-Floors, attentioni!)
It proved so successful that only after the fifteenth robbery did the Gendarmerie start to get slightly suspicious!
The ex-Scrubbers not being absolute "pro's" sometimes accidentally left several clues behind, pink rubber gloves, plastic buckets (for the dosh) and their mops (the mops were used to hit cashiers over le teté).
The Gendarmerie also became suspicious because one of the Scrubbers insisted on mopping the floor after they committed their "dirty" deeds! (slippery getaway, get it?)
They are all now behind bars and have continued where they left off, scrubbing prison floors.
Le Publique Francais have shown a great affection for the gang of Bonny and Clyde wannabees and have nick-named them "Les Scrubbers Terriblés"!
