It just doesn’t get any more bad-ass than this.
Ladies and Gentlemen, The Spider Girls:
Police have arrested two members of one of Chile’s most notorious gangs, known as the Spider Girls.
The all-girl gang of teenagers were infamous for climbing up buildings in Santiago to burgle luxury apartments.
In a spate of high-profile robberies in 2005, they made off with thousands of pounds worth of jewellery.
The gang members were arrested last year but three of them were sent to reform school rather than prison because of their age.
They vowed to change their ways but after being released, one Spider Girl, Yasna, returned to her old tricks, recruiting a new member, Marcielle.
Despite both being heavily pregnant, they still managed to climb up to the third floor of some flats.
. . .
One ex-Spider Girl, Jocelyn, said of the gang’s motivation: “We did it because we wanted money in our pockets. We like to buy new clothes.”
Damn that’s cool.
