Estefany Martinez, Ricky Gonzalez: The Bank Robbers Who Bragged About Their Scam On Facebook Plead Guilty
You might remember the story of teenagers Estefany Martinez and Ricky Gonzalez, who worked with two friends on a criminal-genius plan: The two men would rob the bank where the two women worked as tellers, and then the women would give cops all kinds of bad info on what the robbers looked like.
What could go wrong? Well, you could start posting incriminating stuff about your newly acquired wealth on your Facebook page, where a friends might see a chance to collect some Crime Stoppers reward money.
So you probably shouldn't post something like this:
WOKE UP DIS MORNING! BUST DOWN A SWISHA!!! LOOK IN THE MIRROR LIKE I'M ONE RICH ASS NIKKA!! WIPE MY TEETH WITH HUNDREDS WIPE MY ASS WITH DIS 50s :$:$:$:$:$:$....U HAVE TO PAST THE LINE SOMETIMES!! TO GET DIS MONEY!!
But Gonzalez, aka Ricko Gee, did, and today he entered a guilty plea in his case.
He became the final of the four to do so. The other two accomplices were Anna Margarita Rivera, 19, and her brother Arturo Solano, 22.
They had gotten away with $62,000 in the March robbery, and police only recovered $34,940 of it when arrests began a month later, so they liked living large.
Sentencing will be in November and December.
