Lara Croft model spurs city-wide police search
Store patrons mistake model for robber

A police helicopter and city-wide search was called out after someone spotted a Lara Croft model at a U.K. grocery store and mistook her for an armed robber. Police were called to the supermarket in Portslade after someone spotted Michelle Powell in costume, complete with two toy guns and a black PVC catsuit; but by the time police arrived Powell and another person had left in a black Jeep. Witnesses gave police the Jeep's plate numbers and they were able to track it down to a home in Hove. Officers in bullet-proof vests went to the home but discovered that it was owned by Powell and her husband, who were taking publicity pics for a Lara Croft event. Sussex police gave Powell a talking to, but she wasn't arrested.

BTW, did you know a similar thing happened in 1999 with a live-sized replica of Darth Maul? :rolleyes: Police were alerted by reports of a man brandishing an iron bar in public. Some people...
