British bobbies hunt burqa-clad bandit

British bobbies hunt burqa-clad bandit

British police say they're on the trail of a burqa-clad bandit, or bandits, who robbed three different locations in the past two months.
Police said Tuesday that three armed men, one wearing a full-body veil, stole tens of thousands of pounds (dollars) worth of watches from a jewelers in Banbury, 80 miles (130 kilometers) northwest of London.
Monday's theft follows two incidents in which an assailant wearing a black burqa robbed travel agents in the English towns of Dunstable and Luton, both about 45 miles (70 kilometers) away.
The first robbery occurred in early July. Another occurred about a month later.
Detective Constable Steve Guerin says police aren't sure whether there's a connection between the robberies, but they seem "strikingly similar."
