If you're 36 weeks pregnant -- that's nine months, if you're not a math whiz -- as far as we can tell, you don't want to do much except have the damn baby.

If you're Shadaysha Little, 18, you're not going to let a little pregnancy get in the way of robbing someone, if what Texas City police say is true. And you take along your pregnant pal, Aricka Isaac, 22, to help. Hell, she's only four months pregnant, it should be a breeze for her.

The two women were arrested in Texas City for breaking into an apartment, allegedly seeking money owed to them, and then robbing it while a female resident huddled in a bathroom talking to 911, according to the Galveston County Daily News.

Best line: A cop arrived and one of the suspects walked into the room. "The officer ordered the obviously pregnant woman to lay on the floor face first and ordered the second woman out of the room," the paper says.

That's gotta hurt.

Both women were wearing shower caps and gloves, police said.

They're both in Galveston County Jail on a $10,000 bond each. Hey, at least it's free health care for the delivery.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
