Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
“The law of probability, so true in general, so fallacious in particular,” – Edward Gibbon
Today we have a situation, not unique, but unfortunate that it brings us our Crime Diva of the day.
Carole Galvez, 62,was driving through Collinsville, IL., when a state trooper observed her driving, a 2004 white convertible Volvo, improper lane usage and an illegal covered license plate. . . obviously her behavior prompted the state trooper to do a consented search of the car where he found 27 vacuum sealed plastic bags containing over $1.5 million. This type of unexplainable money is usually drug related.
I am going to guess that this mature woman is a runner, and she was probably acting in a manner (nervous as hell) in which prompted the officer to check the vehicle. Ms. Galvez lived in the city of Gila Bend, AZ, which is located 100 miles North of the US-Mexico border.
Ms. Galves was charged with money laundering and is facing 4 to 15 years in prison.
The State of Illinois is now $1.5 million richer due to this traffic stop. In my research for crime divas, I am learning how much money crime really bring into government. I was recently reading over the Federal District Court of Southern Florida’s site and learned that from the previous year alone the government, in just that area, had secured over $4 Billion in cash and properties. Now do we really think they want to end crime! Think about it!
DeVine thought: I don’t know if Ms. Galvez is truly a criminal or if she was used as a runner. Today, we have many older persons, especially females, who are used as runners by persons who are not willing to do the time for the crime and sometimes they have no ideal what’s actually going on. Then again they do, but the chance of getting a large sum of money from driving across the state line or across country is very enticing. Some get away with this many, many times, but with all things chances run out. There is nothing worth, nor can replace one’s personal and physical freedom. Security is not found in a jail cell.
What do you think about this?
