The Things We Do For Love

When Robert Rivas’ girlfriend was jailed in Pleasant Grove, Utah, he worked quickly to bail her out. And, according to police, Rivas, 26, and Armando Ambriz, 28, got the bail money by robbing a credit union. Police were able to identify Ambriz as one of the alleged robbers before even getting a description of him. “The bank they robbed was just a couple of blocks away from the police department,” Lt. Britt Smith said. “Obviously he stood out like a sore thumb wearing a wig, fake beard and fake eyebrows.” Ambriz and Rivas were both jailed on suspicion of robbery and obstruction of justice. Rivas’ girlfriend was released on bail. “I don’t know what her plans are now that [Rivas] is looking at some prison time,” Smith said. (MS/KSL Salt Lake City) ...True love waits.
