Only in San Mateo County

A couple interesting items from the San Mateo Daily Journal have crossed my desktop.
The police were called out to an unlikely place…

Where a kid can be a kid

Fifteen people were throwing cake at each other at a Chuck E. Cheese’s on El Camino Real in Redwood City before 7:21 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 20.

This one’s a bit more serious…

Bank robbed in Burlingame

Police are on the lookout for two men who robbed the U.S. Bank at 1188 El Camino Real late Friday morning.
At approximately 11:50 a.m., two men, both described as black and in their 20s entered the bank off El Camino Real through the south doors. One jumped over the teller counter with a small silver handgun and took cash from two teller drawers. The other man stayed on the customer side of the counter. Both fled in a red 1992 Chevrolet Suburban which was located nearby on the 1000 block of Paloma Avenue. It was unoccupied and later determined to have been stolen out of Pittsburg prior to the robbery, according to police.
The men were wearing black “hoodie” jackets with the hoods covering their face and are believed to have fled in a different vehicle after they ditched the Suburban, according to police.

It’s never boring up there.
