This story is awesome for a couple of reasons. Three guys got busted for stealing beer from Fuel City. Awesome thing No. 1: they stole Michelob Ultra and Bud Light with Lime. Awesome thing No. 2: they did it right down the street from the county jail. Awesome thing No. 3: they tried to effect their getaway in a big ol’ RV. But the most awesome thing? One of the men was not taken to jail and was instead allowed to drive off in the RV — because a dog named Lola was onboard.
Zac, this gives me an idea for our next Rica Y Chato script. Chato reads the above story about the RV Bandits, and he decides that going forward, he will commit all his crimes with his beloved Chihuahua, Pepe. That way, when he gets nabbed, the coppers will have to let him go because they’re concerned about the dog’s welfare. Pepe then becomes like Dumbo’s magic feather. Chato thinks he can only do his work with the dog riding shotgun. So when a big assignment comes down from headquarters (retrieving a kilo of cocaine from a rival gang that stole it from La Familia) and Chato can’t find Pepe, Rica has to convince his friend that the dog doesn’t matter. Chato can fly all by himself.
