For my first official blog in many moons, I give you a strange news item. Hope it’s new to you. From the Denver Post

ARVADA — Brightly colored women’s thong underwear disguised the identities of two men during a robbery of an Arvada Diamond Shamrock this month. Arvada police say two men entered the gas station near the 6800 block of Wadsworth Boulevard just before 5 a.m. May 16, donning the underwear over their faces and demanding cash from the clerk on duty.
The suspects fled with an undisclosed amount of money and cigarettes.
One suspect, in his early 20s, is 6 feet tall and weighs between 160 and 180 pounds. He has short black hair and was last seen wearing a dark-blue shirt, bluejeans, dark shoes and a green thong over his face.
The other suspect was in his early to mid-20s. He’s between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10 and weighs 180 to 200 pounds. He also has short black hair and has a cross tattoo (6 inches long) on his right upper arm and a tribal tattoo on his left upper arm. He was last seen wearing a blue thong over his face.
Anyone with information about the thong bandits is asked to call Arvada police at 720-898-6728.
