LOS ANGELES — A womanlike former Los Angeles police officer has been identified as the bearded consider in a Northern California bank robbery.
Police contend Jennifer McClary sheltered herself as a man by sketch a brave on her face before handing a teller a note and demanding income at a bank in Danville, California, CBS Los Angeles reports.
Local police arrested McClary a few hours later.
CBS Los Angeles reports McClary served in the LAPD from 2006 to 2008, then worked as a police officer in Placentia, California, until 2010.
Placentia Police Department Sgt. Bryce Angel says McClary was fired for “failing to meet probationary standards,” but pronounced he couldn’t have likely McClary would spin to crime.
“I was astounded anytime a police officer is arrested for a crime like that. It is apparently a distant depart from where they started,” he said. “I consider the person was in a very unfortunate state of mind and was going for a discerning payday and committed a sovereign offense.”
McClary reportedly grew up in north Orange County but after changed to the Bay Area.
Last year, McClary apparently posted a picture on Facebook of her flashing $100 bills in front of her face.
Neighbors where her father lives in Placentia had not listened about her purported crime.
“I find that tough to believe,” one neighbor said. “We lift the kids well, and it doesn’t seem like something she would do.”
McClary is being held in Northern California on $100,000 bail.
