Peggy Jo Tallas (2730)



5/5/2005: Armed with a fake handgun, Tallas reportedly robbed Guaranty Bank and used a Frontier motorhome as a getaway vehicle. Trailing smoke from a crushed dye pack, Tallas led officers on a low-speed chase that ended in a neighborhood, where Tallas stopped the motor home and pulled down the curtains. Five to ten minutes later, Tallas exited the vehicle with the fake gun pointed at officers, who fatally shot her. She appears to have left a loaded .357 Magnum in the vehicle. http://www.texasmonthly.com/articles/the-last-ride-of-cowboy-bob/
