That Thong Th Thong Thong Thong

Call the fashion police. Wearing thong underwear is now officially a crime. When you wear it on your face, anyway. Last week, we detailed the capers of the Arvada "Thong Bandits" in this blog, and only two days later the Denver Post reported that one of the men had been identified.

Joseph R. Espinoza, 24, turned himself in and is believed to be the man who wore the blue thong over his face during the robbery of a Diamond Shamrock. The man who wore the green thong has yet to be found, but they believe it to be Joaquin Rico, 19.
