A Marin County woman wearing a fairy costume was booked into jail after she allegedly attacked and robbed an accused Novato marijuana dealer on Halloween.

According to news reports, 21-year-old Molly Ann Blumberg was with two other women on Oct. 31 when they went to 46-year-old David Murray Randolph's home on the 2400 block of Center Road, where they asked to use his phone.

As the trio entered the house, one of them pulled a gun on Randolph -- who's dealing with his own criminal charges.

Randolph reportedly fought with the women over the weapon until it dropped to the ground. The trio used a metal lamp, a coffee mug, and alcohol bottles to finish off their attack on Randolph, investigators said.

A bleeding Randolph ran out of the house screaming, and the suspects took off with his laptop computer, according to police.

Perhaps a coincidence, but this is the same house that had been raided by the Marin County Major Crimes Task Force in April, when the cops seized more than 500 marijuana plants, two pounds of

processed pot, and indoor growing equipment. The Mercury News reports that Randolph is awaiting trial on charges of marijuana cultivation and possession for sale.

As for Blumberg, she was arrested on Friday while walking down a Petaluma street; she's been booked into Sonoma County Jail for

suspected armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, battery with

serious bodily injury, and burglary. She is being held on $275,000 bail.

Blumberg was the last of the three busted. Teresa Leanne Gollihugh, 20, a former Coast Guard officer, was arrested in Sonoma County on the day of

the robbery, and her mother, Keren Anne Blake, 39, was taken into custody

Nov. 1 at a homeless encampment in Petaluma. They were charged with armed robbery, burglary, assault with a

deadly weapon, battery with serious bodily injury, and conspiracy.
